Getting started

Once you are here...


The ISGS' activities for international (post)graduates comprise a broad range of highly professionalized services for incoming Master and PhD students and scholars. One major task of the ISGS Team is to help the students settle into and become part of the university´s vibrant community. The welcome-service includes pick-up from the train station and drop-off at the student's apartment as well as support with first shopping.

After having arrived at Kaiserslautern train/ bus station, ISGS will send a student assistant or a member of the ISGS-staff to pick you up. You will be accompanied to your appartment. If necessary, we support you in buying some food or a blanket for the first night.

These services are mainly available for participants of our Orientation Course (O.K.) and generally offered during the arrival weeks of ISGS students.
