Recharge your batteries before exams in January

Before the stress of the exam period takes over, the International Office organizes an afternoon of mindfulness and meditation exercises for international students. 

Participants will be able to recharge their batteries and learn how to focus and take time out for themselves and their bodies through certain exercises during a stressful phase.    

The date and location will be announced shortly.

International Tutors 2023/24

The International Tutors at the International Office are on hand to help and advise international students. They help with administrative issues relating to the university, such as course enrolment and the Learning Agreement.

They also provide support with bureaucratic tasks such as city registration at the Citizens' Registration Office and GEZ (German Radio Tax). In addition, they organise several events and excursions per semester for the international students to network and make it easier for them to settle in Weimar and Germany.

Your current tutors are:

Joana Schanze, joana.schanze(at)  

Rommel Guasumba, rommel.guasumba(at) 


Merry Lisztmas! on December 19

Now that the snow has arrived, we'll first make ourselves cozy with tea and cookies during a wintry afternoon. Who can decorate the most beautiful Liszt cookie head?

The winner will receive a biscuit cutter in the form of Franz Liszt’s head to take home and keep on baking!

Meeting point: December 19, 3:00 p.m., mascha (Schützengasse 2)

Autumn in the forest on November 12

To experience Thuringia, a region rich in history and culture, the International Office organizes an excursion to one of Germany's most famous UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Wartburg Castle.

After a hike from the city center of Eisenach through the colorful forest to Wartburg Castle, a guided tour gives the students the opportunity to marvel at the famous Luther Room, where Martin Luther translated the Bible, the art collection and the Elisabeth Bower. 

The day is rounded off in a classic German restaurant with Knödel and gravy.

Welcome brunch on October 20

Food is known to keep body and soul together. It is even better when you can meet new international students in a pleasant atmosphere. That's why the International Office welcomes all new incomings to a typical German breakfast.

Through games and Q&A sessions, everyone can not only get to know and chat with each other, but also ask the international tutors questions in person and get tips and tricks for student life and everyday life in Weimar.
