International Students

Welcome to the Page from the AStA-International on the University of Mainz!

The department promotes the interests and concerns of all foreign students at the University of Mainz.

-HELP in overcoming social and legal problems: answering questions about residence and work permits, financial difficulties, housing, job search, etc.

-CONSULTATION and SUPPORT for study-related issues: Admission, change of subject, study organization.

-ORGANISATION of various events: Intercultural celebrations, country evenings, parties, etc.

-ORIENTATION ASSISTANCE for foreign Ersti students, such as an introduction week for fellow students and DSH visitors at the University of Mainz.

Survey for incoming Students with problems

Dear international students,
We have created this survey to find out which of the international students enrolled at JGU are still in their Homeland and probably won´t be in Germany for the upcoming wintersemester 21/22. Please sign up if you are not sure if you will be able to come to Germany until mid-October. We want to collect this data to make the university administration aware of this problem and possibly find a good solution.

Thank you very much for participating!
