Christian Frank from the ISA office

Living and studying in another country is both exciting and interesting but at the same time it also means organizational and administrative work. Our international applicants and students do not need to worry about this. The Student Service of the IGC looks after them right from the start and answers all questions with regard to the planned study visit in Bremen beforehand. The international student assistance (isa) takes on the task of finding accommodation, gives support with visa applications, clarifies insurance queries and helps the students in their dealings with the authorities both at home and abroad. This service is available to students free of charge. Furthermore the isa allocates tutors to the students and regularly organizes excursions and events during their period of study in Bremen.
