Finding your way around in a new country can be quite difficult at times. Our events and  information sessions aim to help you to integrate and gain a better understanding of some important aspects of everyday life in Germany.

Researchers from non-EU countries must apply for a residence permit at the Immigration Office. The correct residence permit depends on your individual situation. Among other things, your monthly income and whether you have an employment contract with the university or receive a scholarship all determine which type of residence permit you require or are able to obtain. Some residence permits are more favourable than others in terms of qualification for a permanent settlement permit in Germany or mobility rights in other EU countries. This information event will give participants an overview of the different residence permits for researchers and help them find out which residence permits they are entitled to.
