SemesterbegleitprogrammHomestay for International Students

Are you enrolled as an international student at Heidelberg University? Will you be spending the end-of-the-year holidays far away from home? Would you like to know more about German culture and experience how people in Germany celebrate the holidays?

If so, feel free to submit the application form for students for the Homestay Programme of the International Relations Office of Heidelberg University. gastfamilienprogramm@zuv.uni-heidelberg.de

Based on students' individual wishes and needs, hosts will provide them with housing, meals, and/or the opportunity to take part in German holiday traditions. Any other expenses are borne by the guest students. The duration and specific details of the stay can be discussed individually. Depending on the availability of the host, homestays can range from one to several days during the Christmas and New Year's holidays.

The International Relations Office will facilitate contact between the hosts and the respective students. We‘ll do our very best to find a perfect match and will take all preferences such as language proficiency and interests into account.

We are looking forward to hearing from you
