Student Support


Our aim is to welcome all incoming international students and give them essential information, including:

  • The content of the study programme
  • A guided tour of the city and university
  • The chance to get to know other incoming students
  • Living tips (bank account, bus system, etc.)

The orientation is usually held 1 - 2 weeks before the start of the term.

The Buddy Programme is an ongoing support program for all new international students at the Faculty of Business and Engineering.

The aim of the Buddy Programme is to help new students to establish both a social and an academic network. We are interested in making the start of the term a fun and exciting experience for everyone.

In short, a buddy can help making things a little bit easier for you!

International Students Club

As a way to create an exchange between students from different cultures all FHWS students in Schweinfurt are kindly invited to the International Students Club:

  • In German language: Every Monday starting 6:00 p.m.
  • In English language: Every Wednesday starting 6:00 p.m.

in Kebap Haus "Munzur" opposite to FHWS Campus I (Ignaz-Schön-Straße 34). You get to know fellow students and in a relaxed atmosphere you have the opportunity to practice your conversation skills either in German or in English language.

The International Students Club is led by Rick Rogers, a native US-American who is fluent in German. There are no prerequisites to join the club and participation is free of charge.
