Activities for international students

And for all those who want to get to know their international fellow students!
You have just started your studies at KIT, are new in Karlsruhe and want to get to know your international fellow students better? Or you just want to make new contacts? Maybe you are looking for a bicycle or a new room in a shared apartment or you are wondering how to finance your studies? Then this is the right place for you!
I organize a voluntary social program for international students and for all those who want to get to know their international fellow students.
Cultural Onboarding: Welcome event for new students. This is the right place for you if you have just started your studies at KIT and are not yet familiar with KIT.
Multikulti Lunch with Mareike: You like to look beyond your own nose? Then come to the Multikulti Lunch and try the delicacies of other countries! Once a semester there is a multicultural lunch with Mareike, she is the coordinator for international affairs at the faculty. When the weather is nice, we picnic in the castle garden or we go to a nearby café together.
Open office hours: During the lecture period, I offer an open office hour on Tuesdays from 13:30 to 14:00. Here you can ask all your questions! Please register by e-mail and describe your concern, I will help you.
Excursion to a company in the region: Once a semester I organize an excursion to a regional company like the Landesanstalt für Umwelt Baden-Württemberg or Germany's largest mineral oil refinery, the Mineralölraffinerie Oberrhein (MiRO). Other companies will follow.
The exact dates will be announced in time on my website, on the Instagram channel of our KIT faculty kit_chemieingenieurwesen and in the WhatsApp group. If you want to join the WhatsApp group, just send me an email (mareike.schroeterδ or join the ILIAS course "Information and Networking for International Students". In the ILIAS course you will find the link that leads to the WhatsApp group.
