  • Counselling for study-related concerns: Admission, entry into studies, organisation of studies, difficulties in the further course of studies, change of subject.
  • Support and coordination of the German courses of the AStA.

What specifically do I offer and do as the International Affairs Officer?

  • Counselling for international students, e.g. official procedures (residence, visa, etc).
  • maintaining contact with the International Students Office (IStO), the Studienkolleg (STK) of KIT and the International Student Center (ISC) of the Studierendenwerk.
  • to represent the AStA at welcoming events for international students.
