The information on the following webpages is aimed at international students who will be participating in organized exchange programs, i.e. students who are part of a university partnership or exchange program (e.g. ERASMUS). Additionally, this encompasses scholarship holders, who are supported by an institution such as the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Fulbright Commission, KAAD, or another scholarship organization. Students who come to Goethe University for a limited period of time - usually one or two semesters - as non-degree-seeking students. (Information for degree-seeking international applicants can be found here instead.)
Please note that due to the current health situation related to the corona virus, all personal consultation hours of the International Office are unfortunately cancelled until further notice. Please contact us via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone: +49 (0) 69 798-15080/-17191.
UPDATE: All welcome and introductory activities have been cancelled and the start of the summer semester has been postponed to April 20, though it is uncertain that this date can be adhered to.
GIVEN THESE CIRCUMSTANCES THE INTERNATIONAL OFFICE DOES NOT ENCOURAGE STUDENTS NOMINATED BY OUR PARTNERS TO TRAVEL TO FRANKFURT.
We will try to accomodate postponements into the winter semester in case that is an option. We will contact all partners and students involved by email on March 17, 2020.
To those students who already arrived on our campus in early March: We will try our best to accomodate you and help you. Please contact us by mail or phone with your questions and updates. We will try to answer as quick as we can, but delays may occur.
We sincerely hope that by everybody acting in a responsible manner harmful and health threatening situations can be avoided.
The International Office can help you with preparations for your study period at Goethe University in Frankfurt and will assist you during your stay in Frankfurt.
Further information can be found in our brochure Guide for Visiting Students.
