You are not from Germany?

The RWTH Aachen University and the FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences host over 8,000 foreign students, accounting for almost 20% of all students here. They come from approximately 130 different countries from India to Belarus, with many students coming from China, South America, and Turkey, and further nationalities spanning the whole globe.

If you are not from Germany, the decision to participate in the adventure of studying abroad in a foreign country and culture may have been a tough one. Not least, leaving one's social circle and family hinders the decision to immerse oneself in a completely new  environment. Here we are happy to assist you with accommodation offers for apartments and shared flats, where you will quickly find new contacts. We are in close contact with landlords and property management firms that look forward to taking in guests with different cultural backgrounds, and who have already hosted many of our students.

Life & Leisure

Apart from your studies you will encounter many possibilities for outings and recreational activities in Aachen. Also, the beautiful tri border area with Belgium and the Netherlands offers much to be discovered. Not only the inhabitants of Aachen, the “Öcher”, as they refer to themselves, but also the European neighbours of the adjoining Euregio are welcoming and cosmopolitan.
