If you are an international student at HS-Niederrhein and have any questions, problems, or just feel lonely, do not hesitate to contact us!

We can help you finding an appartment, a job, an internship, or accompany you, if you need a translator for an appointment.

If you have any trouble with your study, a landlord, your boss, a German Agency, the law or encounter difficulties with the German language or culture, we will help you.

If you do not know what to do in your free-time or if you feel home-sick, because of the new culture and environement in Germany, please let us know!

We are also always open for suggestions for new activities, like cooking meals from your home country or whatever you want to do to and are looking forward to hearing new ideas from you.

We offer a consultation hour in the AStA-Office in Mönchengladbach, and we can always make an appointment if you contact me under my Email-Address.
