International Welcome

To help you get started with your studies, RUBiss (RUB - international student services) organises an International Welcome for new international students.

At the International Welcome, new international students receive helpful information on starting their studies like for example introductions to the current online programmes at Ruhr University Bochum, information about city registration, course registration, participants also get the opportunity to meet fellow students online and much more! Throughout the International Welcome, participants are supported by the so called Campus Guides.

Programme summer term 2023

The International Welcome already starts with information events well before the semester begins. The RUBiss team offers the following preparatory events in February/March 2023:

Online events

During this period, one online event will take place every day at 2 p.m. each of which deals with a topic related to life and study in Bochum. Among them, for example:

  • Technical requirements for studying at RUB: We explain Moodle, eCampus, RUB-Mail, Zoom etc. to you.
  • Information on your enrolment documents, student ID, NRW-Ticket etc.
  • Leisure activities at the RUB, such as RUBiss events, university sports, the Music Centre, etc.
  • and much more!

All events will take place via Zoom.

We will publish the programme of the online events early next year!

Face-to-face events

For one week, we organise various classroom events for you. Among them, for example:

  • Campus tours with Campus Guides
  • Guided tours through Bochum
  • Guided tours through the Botanical Garden
  • Guided tours through the German Mining Museum Bochum
  • and more!

Registration for this begins with the start of the International Welcome! (mid-March 2023)
