Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences cordially welcomes international students. More than 800 students from all over the world are currently enrolled in our degree programs.
On the following pages, you find information on all major aspects such as the application process, the university, costs and financing opportunities. Also, you can find information on what life is like in Osnabrück and Lingen, our two university locations.
Do you already know our Signal group? Signal is an instant messenger, but in contrast to WhatsApp it is much more secure and preserves your privacy, because no data and address books are forwarded unencrypted. And we think that's great!
The Signal group is intended to enable all international students to get in touch, exchange information and make friends. Especially in the beginning of your studies this is super important.
We will also be active in this group to provide you with information relevant to your studies, to give you tips on events and to be available for questions, if necessary.
To become a member, please fill out the registration form and send it back to us. Hereby, you agree that we may add you to the group with your first and last name as well as your mobile number.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us!
Your Center for International Students
International students are an important part of Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences. Our students from all over the world make the university diverse, exciting, open-minded, international, intercultural and competitive - in other words: a better place to study.
Therefore, Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences strives to constantly improve and monitor study conditions. For this purpose, we would like to know more about the expectations and experiences of our international students. By taking part in the International Student Barometer ISB, you can help our university and (prospective) international students to enhance our services.
What is the ISB?
The International Student Barometer (ISB) tracks and compares international students' decision-making, expectations, perceptions, and intentions from application to graduation. It enables us as a university to make informed decisions to improve the international student experience and drive successful recruitment and marketing strategies.
The online survey takes a look at the following eight key areas:
1. decision making
2. application process
4. arrival and orientation
5. the learning experience
6. the living experience
7. support services
The ISB allows us to track and compare the level of satisfaction of our international students and identify specific areas that are important to you and improve them as best as we can for you to be satisfied!
Denia (she/her) works as a student assistant for the Center for International Students and offers you a helping hand during her consultation hours every Thursday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in room AB 0002B! The good thing is that because she is an international student herself, she can perfectly understand your concerns and perspectives. And because she has been studying at Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences for a long time, she can give you valuable tips and assistance. If you would like to make an appointment with Denia, send an email to email@example.com
You are interested in intercultural exchange and want to get to know other international students? Then come to our Meet & Greets!
With our project Meet & Greet @ Café International we offer you the opportunity to escape the daily university routine for a short moment and spend time with other (international) students in a cozy atmosphere.
