Being an international student, as well as attending an international programme could be challenging for those who left their country, the loved ones and the life they have been living for a long time. Fortunately, everyone in Witzenhausen and Fulda made an effort to make us feel like we are home. The orientation week of the Master programme international Food Business and Consumer Studies (IFBC) gave us a complete overview of what this international master is all about, from getting to know our new friends, cities and universities, to making field trips to relevant places for our academic training.

Learning in a different style

Since the International Food Business and Consumer Studies programme offered by Hochschule Fulda - University of Applied Sciences is a joint degree between Kassel and Fulda University. Students have a chance to explore and learn at both campuses in Witzenhausen and Fulda. The activity that we have attended at the first day of orientation week, helped us to know about student clubs, communities and even where to drink coffee in Witzenhausen! Instead of learning through blogs, internet or navigation, we have explored the city by ourselves!
