To help ensure a smooth start to your degree programme, the OBS supports students at more than 25 universities in Germany by appointing multi-lingual Betreuerstudierende – BEST (student mentors) who work together with liaison officers.
From their own experience, the BEST understand the difficulties and demands of starting a degree programme in a foreign language and can give you valuable local tips, such as:
• finding accommodation
• meeting fellow students
• leisure activities
• guided tours of the university
• getting to lectures
• introductions to seminars
• library tours
• study sessions
• cultural and education policy events
The university websites and their BEST can be found here.
