Welcome Centre for International Researchers

Research and life at FAU

The Welcome Centre is the main service centre for international guest researchers and doctoral candidates visiting FAU and their host departments.

We provide free advice, information and support for guest researchers in preparation for and throughout their stay. Our team work closely with organisations within and outside of FAU to ensure all guest researchers benefit from co-ordinated services and feel welcome at FAU. In 2010, our service was selected by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation as a best practice model.

The Welcome Centre is only for guest researchers and doctoral candidates. International students and interns should refer to information for international applicants.

Celebrating 10 years of the Welcome Centre

The Welcome Centre was set up in 2008, and on June 21 this year we celebrated our 10th birthday with our international guests and their hosts. In the banquet hall of the Mensa, we listened to speeches, dined from the buffet and enjoyed coffee and, of course, some birthday cake. We would like to thank all guests for this very special party and we are looking forward to our next ten years!
