Buddy Programme

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.

Theatre workshop IDeFix

Theatre workshop IDeFix - Training of communicative and rhetorical skills for University and professional life via the medium of theatre


Led by: Joachim Bürkert
Time: First Session: Tuesday, 16 October 2018, 4 pm - 6 pm
Location: Institut für Deutsch als Fremdsprachenphilologie, Plöck 55, room 010


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.
