International Students

Whether you have come to Berlin for one semester or for a full study program – we at the Social Counselling Centre would like to support you.

You should arrange your studies – and all the associated chances and opportunities – in the best possible way. We are here to help, especially if you have questions about organising your daily life.

  • Advice on financing your studies and on your social rights
  • Advice for non-German nationals
  • Advice for pregnant students and students with children
  • Counselling, support and mediation for conflict situations
  • Loans and financial support in emergencies

Our counselling services are free and confidential. Of course, we can also provide these services in English. You will find us at three locations  – Charlottenburg, Dahlem and Friedrichshain. During our counselling hours, you can come to us without an appointment. However, you can also arrange a personal appointment outside counselling hours, or we can assist you via phone or email.

Please get in touch – we will be happy to advise you.

International Tutors

Do you come from China, an Arab-speaking country, or from a country in Africa? Our three international tutors are international students themselves. If you would like to ask your questions in your first language, they are there for you as a first point of contact. Get in touch!

"We are students who’ve been asked by the studierendenWERK to help you with your daily life and studies in Berlin.

We are partners for African, Chinese and Arabic-speaking students and can help you with questions about financing your studies or the activities of the studierendenWERK BERLIN.

We want to encourage students from different countries to swap experiences and, by offering you a point of contact in your native language, to make it easier for you to arrive and settle in Berlin.

Unfortunately, we cannot offer rooms in halls of residence or places at higher education institutions.

We are looking forward to your questions and hearing your impressions of studying and living here in Berlin."
