University Programme – BEST

The Otto Benecke Stiftung e. V. (OBS) University Programme supports scholarship holders both through university admission and during their studies.

Betreuerstudierende – BEST (student mentors) and liaison officers are active in around 25 universities across Germany to help their new fellow students settle into university life and living in Germany.

Support can range from course introductions and assistance with studying, through to cultural and political educational events.

If you’d like to take advantage of what OBS offers, we’d love to hear from you! Please get in touch with the BEST at your university!
