Opportunities for International Students

Student Activities - Offers for international students

At the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg there are appr. 1900 international students studying, which is 25% of its student population and far ahead of the national average of 12-13%. Therefore we developed special offers for our international students.

Whenever you relocate to another country everything seems foreign: the language, the surroundings, and the culture. At first glance a lot of issues might look more complicated, but can be solved easier with support. Hence we offer advice and guidance among other on financial problems, visa/residence issues and trouble with authorities. Please come to our office during consulting hours and address any issues.

Janine Wehrstedt is the contact person for international student support at the Central Campus Cottbus and runs the 'Student Activities Office'. She provides students with advice and support, also for the planning of public and cultural events. The International Relations Office works very closely with Student Council (StuRa) and the faculty student organisations (Fachschaften), the city and the residents of Cottbus and Senftenberg. 

To ensure that our international students feel comfortable on campus and around town the 'Student Activities Office' offers different events, such as excursions and get-together, to help international students to connect and discover the town.
