Are you going to be travelling straight from your home country to Fulda? If you are, you will probably find it reassuring to have reserved accommodation before you set off. The International Office can help you to find rented accommodation at special terms and conditions – in publicly owned halls of residence or private apartments.
This accommodation is fully furnished and equipped with bed linen, towels, cooking utensils and cutlery, etc, so you do not need to bring anything like that with you when you move in. You can only rent this kind of accommodation through the International Office.
All students must have health insurance coverage in Germany.
The University has a pleasant campus, with attractive buildings grouped around a central plaza. Everything is just minutes away from everything else. The city centre is in walking distance, about 20 minutes away.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
