International students obviously need a lot of support when making the transition to a new country. The Step by Step program offered by the International Office helped me a lot with understanding German culture and working environment. The various events offered range from “Applying for Internships” to “International Students & Taxation”. The Step by Step initiative comprehensively covers the needs of International students!
Participating in the Step by Step workshop was the best decision I made during my studies in Mannheim. Not only did I learn something valuable and useful for my future profession, but I also received helpful feedback on what I can improve in order to have better job opportunities in Germany and to integrate better into German society. All foreigners share the same concerns due to worries about the future and problems associated with integration. Workshops like the ones of Step by Step help us all to overcome these problems.
