At the beginning of every term, each campus conducts an orientation program especially designed to assist incoming students in adjusting to a new country. Lectures are planned to introduce students not only to some of the customs and cultural heritage of the host country, but to the practical aspects of living in that country as well.
Students receive information about train and bus schedules and fares, banking procedures and hours, student discounts, inexpensive restaurants, and local customs. Every effort is made to ease the transition to life in a new country and to answer all questions students may have about the school and the host country. We also help you to deal with things like residence permit, visa, driving licenses etc.
For many of our students, coming to study at Schiller may be their first experience living abroad. It will no doubt be one of the most exciting things they have done, yet it is not without its challenges! From day one all new students are allocated a Student Buddy, a current Schillerian, who helps them to settle in. See also:
