The International Club is a forum for local and international students, who would like to do more socializing and are interested in other cultures. The Club offers various programs and opportunities for students, including a Tandem-Service, in which students learning another language can find speaking-partners.
Who we are:
Students from the entire world that study at university level in Freiburg.
What we want:
To broaden our horizons through meeting new students and experiencing new cultures
What we do:
We hold regular meetings at the Mensabar on Thursdays to discuss extracurricular actives for example, original language movies, international evenings, the “Unterwegs” series and the best parties. On Sundays, we show the popular German television show ‘Tatort’ in the Mensabar (Canteen). Pure German television culture!
