Extracurricular Program for International Students and Researchers

In addition to the courses at the JGU, there is also a so-called co-op study program for foreign exchange students and researchers. This program offers courses which are designed to ease integration into the German study routine/life for foreign exchange students and researchers, such as:

  • to increase their professional knowledge, for example by offering subject-specific tutorials/classes,
  • to guarantee the completion of their degree, e.g. by offering graduate scholarships,
  • to gain more knowledge beyond their own subject, which is why excursions, sightseeing tours and family visits are offered in cooperation with the TOM (Tutors of Mainz),
  • to include/ introduce their interests in groups and initiatives which address the various concerns of students,
  • to make the reintegration back in their home country easier
