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.
