The International Relations Office of Heidelberg University, in cooperation with various departments, offers a Buddy Programme designed to help international students adjust to every aspect of their new life as a student in Heidelberg. International students who participate are assigned a personal “buddy” (another student from Heidelberg) to lend a helping hand.

Training of communicative and rhetorical skills for University and professional life via the medium of theatre
|Led by:||Joachim Bürkert|
|Time:||Introduction: Tuesday, 17 October 2017, 4 - 6 pm|
|Location:||Institut für Deutsch als Fremdsprachenphilologie, Plöck 55,
IDeFix is the name of the theatre group of the Institut für Deutsch als Fremdsprachenphilologie (IDF) and the International Relations Office. We want to encourage all students interested in the theatre to take the stage. We believe that acting is one of the most spirited, joy-filled and effective ways to learn German and experience the language in all its facets.
The theatrical training at the IDF extends over two semesters. This basic course covers the fundamental techniques of acting for the theatre. Training in articulation and intonation will be honed through scene performance, with an emphasis on speech exercises. During the following summer semester, we will prepare a production for public performance.
The International Relations Office invites all international guests and students to a piano concert:
Aurelia Shimkus (piano) will play works by Schubert, Skrjabin, Chopin, Mendelssohn and Liszt.
13 November 2017, 8 p.m.
University’s Great Hall (Aula der Alten Universität)
