Meet your fellow students
You are new in Karlsruhe and would like to connect with your fellow students? KIT students as well as other international exchange students can’t wait to meet you!
Let us introduce you to…
… the student Group AK Erasmus
The members of the student group AK Erasmus are dedicated to supporting students who participate in international exchange programs by organizing the “O-Phase”, which is the orientation week for international exchange students at KIT, and by offering exciting and affordable parties, city trips and other great events to make sure you will experience an unforgettable time in Germany. Every Tuesday they organize a “Stammtisch” in changing locations in Karlsruhe, where you will be warmly welcomed. If you would like to share your language or learn a new one, also stop by their Language Café and don't forget to check out the many opportunities to become part of KIT’s international community at [http://www.ak-erasmus.de/en/incomer/].
… the “Wiwi-Fachschaft”
The Wiwi-Fachschaft is the student council at the Department of Economics and Management. As a team of about 50 students, they help you with study-related questions, sell old exams to use as an exercise, release the magazine Wi² each semester, and organize many fun events, such as the semester parties WiWiWi & WiWiSo. They also organize the general orientation days for all new Bachelor- and Master-students at our department, which are of course also open to international students (degree-seeking students are encouraged to attend). You can visit the Wiwi-Fachschaft during their consultation hours Mo-Fr 11.00-02:00 (during the semester break only on Wednesdays). [contact information]
