An exciting week of digital language and regional studies modules with Russian, Armenian, Georgian, Belarusian, and Ukrainian students is behind us! In cooperation with the Goethe-Institutes of the Eastern European and Central Asian region, we dealt with various topics concerning life and studies in Germany. On Monday we discussed with the students about Germany as a place to study in general, on Tuesday we introduced Hamburg as one of the most beautiful cities (and study locations) in Germany, and on Wednesday we took them on a virtual city tour through the Hanseatic city to show them Jungfernstieg and City Hall, Landungsbrücken and Elbphilharmonie Concert Hall, Speicherstadt and Hafencity and much more. Yesterday, we worked with the students to find out about study opportunities in Hamburg, with a special focus on the STEM study programs (mathematics/informatics/natural sciences/technology). Today, together we deepened important vocabulary about studying, student life, and everyday life and dealt with questions about housing opportunities for students, part-time jobs, living costs, and challenges for foreign students in Germany.
Next week we will go deeper into these topics in conversations with students about student life in general and everyday life in MINT subjects. In addition, we will have talks with employees of the International Office of the University of Hamburg – we are very excited and look forward to the exchange!
Interested students in Germany are cordially invited to contact us if they are interested in these discussions with the students!
We are looking forward to you!

The second week of our digital language and regional studies modules with Russian, Armenian, Georgian, Belarusian and Ukrainian students is now over and so is the course! In cooperation with the Goethe-Instituts in the regions of Eastern Europe and Central Asia, we have been working even more intensively on the topics of living and studying in Germany over the past few days.
On Monday, we had an interactive talk with employees of the International Office of the University of Hamburg. They first introduced the University of Hamburg and then answered the numerous questions of the students. On Tuesday, the participants had the opportunity to ask German students about their everyday university life and to find out about study conditions, housing options, costs and financing options, leisure activities, and much more. On Wednesday, we gave the young people an overview of the admission requirements and application conditions at various German universities and on Thursday we trained them how to write certain documents such as a tabular CV or a letter of motivation in German.
Finally, on Friday, the students had the chance to talk to STEM students and ask specific questions about STEM study programs.
We from aubiko e.V. would like to thank all participants for their great contributions during the last two weeks! The course was a lot of fun and we are looking forward to welcoming some of the students to study in Germany soon!
