International Students Club (ISC) and its Buddy Program

The ISC is a student-organised body of the International Office and active both at the campus in Amberg and in Weiden.

The main goal is simple: the ISC wants to promote contact between OTH’s international and German students. Students from all over the world should feel welcome and at home at OTH AW. To achieve this, the team does not only organise regular events on site, but also organises various excursions near and far.

The ISC would like to be a place to make friends and experience new things together, a place of mutual respect and togetherness. Plus, they also want to encourage German students to venture abroad and serve as an informal contact point for international students.

More Information on the ISC


International Buddy Program

The International Buddy Program enables international students of OTH AW to get to know German students and to have contact persons for questions and problems that arise. Further, German students who are interested in international and intercultural exchange have the opportunity to meet students from all over the world.

Buddies are committed students who are interested in international exchange and who help international students during the semester. Activities of the buddies are for example the support by dealing with authorities and help with questions/problems that arise during the daily study life.

Are you interested in becoming a Buddy or would you like to get supported as an international student?
Then get in touch with us :)
