International Christmas Guest
Dear international students – Will you spend Christmas alone and far away from your family for the first time? Or have you already been staying in Hamburg for some time and have spent Christmas alone in the past? Maybe you don’t celebrate Christmas in your home country, but you are interested in getting to know what Christmas is all about? Would you like to learn more about one of the most important festivities in Germany?
If you don’t have plans for Christmas yet, join in and become an “International Christmas Guest”. Let Hamburg citizens invite you and learn more about Christmas traditions, listen to interesting Christmas anecdotes, get to know new people, and gain experiences that you will never forget.
Are you interested in being an “International Christmas Guest” and would you like to spend Christmas with people from Hamburg? Then register as soon as possible! Deadline: 13 December!
Further services are offered by the external organisations listed below:
Homestay program for international students
Two-week homestay program for international students with German families: This intercultural experience is a great form of personal enrichment, for guests and the families alike.
Our partner is the not-for-profit association Experiment e.V., the German branch of a international organisation acting under the motto of:
“People learn to live together by living together“
Experiment e.V. seeks to promote exchanges among people of different origins to boost mutual understanding and respect.
If you are enrolled at a German university, university of applied sciences, or preparatory college and would like to see another side of Germany, Experiment e.V. gives you the chance to do this, financed by the Federal Foreign Office. Staying with a host family allows you to experience German culture up close and personally, make new friends, and improve your language skills. The host families are spread all over Germany. You should register no later than 8 weeks prior to your desired start date. Your share of the costs for a 14-day host-family stay is 40 € (including travel costs).
The Counselling Centre for Social & International Affairs arranges counselling services and enrolment for the Hamburg university for this programme (FAS).
