Welcome to the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg!
The International Office aims to support you before, during and after your stay in Magdeburg, regardless of whether you come to our institution as an applicant, student, placement student, researcher or employee. In our Life in Magdeburg section you will find information on culture and leisure, housing, German language courses and the services offered by OVGU. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or problems. A member of our team will be glad to help.
In addition to the advice and support offered by the International Office, there are also initiatives that help you to integrate and plan your leisure time in Magdeburg. Both IKUS (Intercultural Students) for international students and MIPS (Magdeburg International PhD Students) for international doctoral students offer various activities and programmes.
