Who are we and what are we here for?

We are the largest community for international students at the University of Cologne!

The International Student Associations pursue the following aims:

  • Networking and cultural exchange between students of the University of Cologne
  • Assistance and orientation for international first-year students
    (residence and work permit, accommodation search, orientation of
    new environment, procurement of working materials for the study, etc.)
  • Exchange of experiences and support during your studies
  • Reducing prejudices
