For the fourth time in a row, the GoAbroad Info fair took place on 27 November 2019 on the occasion of studying abroad. The fair is organized annually by Heinrich-Heine-University (HHU) and is hosted by the foreign ambassadors of the five faculties as well as the International Office of HHU. Around 20 exhibitors were guests this year, including, for the first time, the faculties of HHU, which were represented with their own stands. The spectrum of content ranged from the clarification of financing issues and language acquisition to establishing contacts with foreign organizations in and outside Europe.
Professor Stefan Marschall, Vice President for International Relations and Science Communication, welcomed the students at the fair.
The fair took place within the "GoAbroad week", during which students could use, among other services, advisory services and seminars on studying in Europe and overseas offered by the International Office. A "speed meeting" with students who have already completed a stay abroad offered interested parties first-hand experience. The "GoAbroad-Party", organised by the Erasmus Student Network (ESN), concluded the international week.
The GoAbroad team consists of the foreign ambassadors of the faculties and represents a bridge between the Rectorate and the individual faculties. They are the contact persons for international matters and are available to answer questions about your stay abroad.
For more than 30 years, the EU ERASMUS programme has been successfully helping students to study abroad and continues to enjoy growing numbers of applicants. It is personal experiences abroad that have a lasting effect on one's own career and path of life. The increasing relevance of the experience abroad on the job market should not be underestimated. HHU supports all internationalization efforts, be it through the GoAbroad fair, partnerships abroad, staff mobility, student exchanges or mobility grants.
