Assistance for International Students

The University supports the ERASMUS students in all aspects of their studies in Kiel. Students are welcome to contact the ERASMUS office of the Faculty and the International Center.

Moreover, several social and cultural events are offered in order to help foreign students integrate with the local student community.


The ERASMUS Office

Ms. Carmen Thies is the contact person at the ERASMUS office for all oraganisational questions, e.g. the choice if lectures, regarding the ERASMUS programme of the Faculty of Law. For general information on the application and studying abroad, please contact the International Center.


The International Center

The International Center organises an introductory session every semester to provide useful information on living and studying in Kiel. There are tutors available to help you with your registration and the local authorities during your stay in Kiel.


The Welcom Team

The Welcome Team is based the Walther Schücking Institute and consists of law students from Kiel who formerly studied abroad on the ERASMUS programme. The Team gives advice on your studies and organises excursions, e.g. to the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, and meetings with other ERASMUS students at the Faculty.



BaSIS ("Beratung und Service für Internationale Studierende", Advice and Service for International Students) provides information and advice on all questions concerning life as an international student in Kiel. BaSIS also organizes and coordinates a range of cultural events and the StudyBuddy programme. This programme partners every international student with one Kiel student - the Buddy - who can provide expert knowledge and concrete support. Students and their Buddies often take part in group activities. More Information about the services of BaSIS can be found on the website of the Student Union (see under "International")
