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 Winter Semester 2022/23

The International Welcome already starts with information events well before the semester begins. The RUBiss team offers the following preparatory events in August/September 2022:

Online events 19 September - 23 September 2022

During this period, one online event will take place every day at 2 p.m. to further inform and prepare you step by step about studying at RUB.

We will publish the exact programme soon but you already have the opportunity to register for the online phase:

During this week you will have the opportunity to explore the campus on a campus tour together with your campus guides and to take part in excursions. We look forward to meeting you in person then!

Further details about the programme will be published soon!

Who are the Campus Guides?

Campus Guides are students from higher semesters, who volunteer thei time to support you during your first steps on campus: They will accompany you during the orientation days, answer initial questions about your degree programme, take part in the language café with you, etc.

In addition, they will provide regular (online) support throughout your entire first semester. This is how you make your first contacts at university - and who knows, maybe a friendship will develop beyond the first semester!
