SemesterbegleitprogrammHomestay for International Students

Are you enrolled as a student at Heidelberg University? Will you be spending the end-of-the-year holidays far away from your home? Would you like to have the opportunity to get to know more about German culture in a highly personal way?

If so, submit an application for the Homestay Programme being offered by the International Relations Office.

Based on students' individual wishes and needs, host families will provide them with housing, meals, and/or the opportunity to take part in German holiday traditions. Any other expenses must be borne by the guest students themselves.

Both the time frame and the specific details of the homestay can be individually determined. Depending upon host family availability, homestays ranging from one to several days in length can be arranged during the Christmas and New Year's holidays.

The International Relations Office will arrange contact between host families and students, taking into account the language spoken, interests, and desires of all to the greatest extent possible.
