General Information

Welcome Centre for International Scholars

The Welcome Centre is the central information and service institution for international scholars after PhD at Heidelberg University. We provide the necessary information, advice and customized support around all topics relevant for preparing a stay in Heidelberg and everyday life here – from arrival, the search for an apartment and essential visits to authorities up to the finding of an appropriate kindergarten for your children. The Welcome Centre cooperates very closely with other service institutions of Heidelberg University as well as with the administration of Heidelberg. Furthermore, we regularly organize events and excursions for visiting researchers and their families.


If you are an international student, please contact the office for international matriculated students. Applicants for a university place address themselves to the admission office for international applicants. Foreign graduate students can contact the Graduate Academy.
