The regional „Studentenwerk Schleswig-Holstein“ prepared a comprehensive brochure for international students studying in Kiel. Please go to and click on “International” > “BaSIS”.

The “Studentenwerk Schleswig-Holstein” also offers an exchange student participation of the “Study Buddy Program". The “Study Buddy Program" aims to encourage contact between international students and students in Kiel. Every international applicant of the Study Buddy Program will be given the opportunity of a 1to1 exchange with a German “Buddy”. Since it is a free and voluntary program, the form and frequency of the exchange depends greatly on the individual “Buddies.”
The exchange with a German student can help making the start of studying in Kiel a lot easier, since your buddy can provide you expert knowledge as well as concrete support while finding your way through the German bureaucratic system. On request even an arrival-service is offered. For further information and application please visit  “International”.
