Take up the international challenge!

The International Office has two programmes which offer students in Bielefeld the opportunity to become interculturally active and receive a certificate confirming their successful voluntary involvement.

Country Ambassadors

Country Ambassadors are student representatives who can be contacted by those planning a visit to the country. They can offer helpful advice on specific issues relating to the country, the town and the host University. They can also provide additional motivation to students who are still undecided about going abroad.
