Student services

Throughout their stay, students are supported in everyday issues and in administrative, housing or personal matters by the Graduate School Office and the Student Union.

They are given assistance in obtaining their visa, residence permit, health insurance and housing. In addition, students are given the opportunity to take part in many social and cultural events throughout their time in Esslingen.

"A special thanks ... to the staff members of the Graduate School. The study programs could not exist without coordinators that act almost invisibly behind the scenes, administrating and organizing every bit of our everyday student life at university." - Oliver Breuning and Juergen Schmidt, ASM 2016
