Events for Exchange Students: a welcome and introduction

Dear international students,

We are all concerned with the spread of the Coronavirus COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2). The University of Göttingen would like to do everything possible to minimize risk of infection and to protect the students and those employed by the University from the virus. Therefore, until further notice, all currently planned major events at the University have been cancelled.

We must therefore inform you that the physical Introductory Event for International Students for Winter Semester 2020 will be cancelled. Alternatively, we will offer the presentation via a video conference on October 14th at 09:30 o'clock. All necessary information will be sent via email.

Additional information on the Coronavirus and the various measures being taken by the University are available at Please stay informed, paying particular attention to the recommendations for students entering Germany from risk areas.

We regret the cancellation of our welcome event and wish you safe travels. We will be happy to answer your questions by phone or email.

Sincerely yours,
The International Student Office
