Foyer International

Dear All,
Welcome to the winter semester 2020/21!

We are the Foyer Team working as a subdivision of Göttingen University International Office. We provide a platform for all students, regardless of their nationality and background, to meet and spend quality time together in gatherings of their interest. All meetings and activities are always free and you are warmly welcome to join at any point.

Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, we offer part of our programs online on the Big Blue Button platform and part in person based on the regulations. Under this link to Big Blue Button you can join all of our programs always for free. Here is a list with the details:

As being known for hosting diverse nationalities, we have organized different cafes for language aficianados. You can join Caffè Italia and Typic German?!, to improve your language skills by having direct contact with native speakers. These language workshops intend to extend the learning process from classrooms to a friendly and real-life situation where interesting aspects emerge.

You can also put your acting and drawing skills to the test at the Theater Course or Painting Workshop. The courses offer you a chance to discover and display your secret talents! If you want to do yoga, you should definitely join our Yoga Workshop .


We wish you a wonderful semester and look forward to seeing you.

Your Foyer Team,
Mohsen, Merve, Elif
