Intercultural exchange
Diversity, encounter and dialogue

Many people from different cultures come together at a university location. We organize a variety of projects to promote international exchange and cultural interests. Whether it's family stays for foreign students in German families or a joint Christmas party of international students who don't travel home for the Christmas season and German hosts. We believe that intercultural experience is enriching.


Family stays for international students
Two-week family stays for international students in German families

Guests and families alike experience this intercultural experience as a great personal enrichment. Our cooperation partner is the non-profit organization Experiment e.V., the German branch of an internationally active organization under the motto: "People learn to live together by living together". Experiment e.V. wants to promote the exchange of people from different backgrounds in order to contribute to mutual understanding and respect. If you are enrolled at a German university, university of applied sciences or a preparatory college and would like to get to know Germany from a different perspective, Experiment e.V. offers you this opportunity with the financial support of the German Federal Foreign Office.

By staying with a host family you can experience German culture up close, make new friends and improve your language skills. The host families are spread all over Germany. The application should be received at least 8 weeks before the desired date
