The RIH offers various different workshops every semester for ongoing education, and these are tailored for foreign and refugee students. Here you can find the current offers:

 

Workshop: Time Management for Writing Assignments of any size

The semester is coming to an end and now the term papers and theses are coming into focus. But how do you want to organize your time and resources, so that you can write those texts without getting too stressed out? It helps a great deal to understand the writing process, the phases that a writer goes through, and the many small tasks that belong to each one. In this workshop we will look at the entire writing process and discuss strategies and methods to approach it with motivation instead of stress. Bring with you all your upcoming writing tasks and projects, deadlines, and calendars, and we will figure out together exactly how you can organize and use your time productively.  The language of the workshop (German or English) will be agreed on with the participants.  

Date: Friday, 27th January 2023, 9am - 1pm

Language: English

Application coaching for subsequent transition from study to the working environment in Germany

This workshop is intended to make you aware of the application standards and to provide you with strategies and the basic knowledge required for successful entry into the working environment in Germany.

Monthly get-together

Monthly get-together

The Stammtisch is our monthly get-together for meeting new people, having fun and practicing the German language together. It's really not about the right grammar but about the fun of interacting with each other in a safe and casual environment. On these evenings, however, we want to try and speak only German. Nevertheless, you are also very welcome to join uin if you have only a beginner's level (A1) and may not be comfortable to speak in German the whole evening. We meet once a month on monday evening at 7pm in the Global Café (Parkstraße 6). Please find the exact dates on our flyer
We're looking forward to meeting you there!

Have you ever spent a long time immersed in a foreign culture? Then you know that the most difficult part of being in a new environment is at the start. That is why it is so important to help newcomers with advice and practical support.

A Rostock student will therefore provide support as a Welcome Buddy to enable refugee students to find their way round in the university jungle.
