Coaching Program for Internatonal Degree-Seeking Students

Coaches for new international students wanted.

Would you like to help international students to settle in at the university and feel at home in Mannheim? Then sign up for our coaching program!

Who can sign up?
Students from all areas of the university who are at least in their 2nd semester and would like to help international students to get started at the University of Mannheim can sign up for the program. Ideally, you should be available for a minimum of one semester.

What am I expected to do as a coach?
The 'coach' from Mannheim is supposed to be the respective international student’s first contact in Mannheim. The coach helps with any study-related questions and issues and provides support in a number of situations that are new to the international student (e.g. picking the student up at his/her day of arrival, administrative procedures and searching accommodation). All this is meant to make the first few weeks at the university and in Mannheim easier for the international student.

What are the advantages of the coaching program?
The coaching program allows you to meet international students, improve your language proficiency, and increase your intercultural competencies. Therefore, it is good preparation for your own trip abroad. Moreover, it gives you the chance to make new friends!
