International Office

As a competence centre for international mobility, the International Office at OVGU is the service and coordination organisation responsible for the university’s international relations. In cooperation with the Vice Chancellor’s office, the faculties, the administration and other institutions our role is to continue to internationalise the university and offer an extensive range of services. Our helpful staff members are at your service.

Those at OVGU who are considering GOING ABROAD for a couple of months for study or research purposes, and those who come to Magdeburg as international guests, always have a lot of questions. The International Office is here to offer reliable help and assistance. We provide home students and academics with support in finding suitable exchange programmes and offer advice on subjects such as international academic degrees, sources of funding, questions regarding foreigners’ rights and even just practical aspects of everyday life when you are far away from home. Furthermore, the International Office is an exchange for cross-border academic contacts and also organises events with an international flavour. More


Those who have arrived from FROM ABROAD, have been admitted to studies and have started their studies at Otto von Guericke University, will receive support in any issues regarding residence permission, insurance, finding an apartment, administrative matters and any other issues that help make their stay in Magdeburg as pleasant and successful as possible. International admission are not handled by the International Office; therefore we can not answer questions concerning current admissions matters. More
