International Office

The International Office (IO) is the University’s central point of contact for all international issues.

We coordinate international partnerships and the university’s cooperation projects, develop and implement programmes with international partners.

We provide advice to German students, graduates and academics when planning and organising international projects or periods of stay abroad.

We advise and provide information to prospective students from abroad and are responsible for their admission. Foreign students receive support for any study-related, legal or social matters.

Emergency Financial Aid for International Students

The Ministry of Education, Science and Culture Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is providing funds to support foreign students, who find themselves in financial difficulties due to the coronavirus crisis and have no legal entitlement to BAföG, or are unable to otherwise secure their living expenses. The financial support can be provided for up to 3 months and amounts to a maximum of 500 euros per month. The request form can be found here. Request forms can now be sent to the International Office. Please send the signed and completed form either as a scan in .pdf format to io-studiumuni-greifswaldde or via post to the International Office (Domstraße 8, 17487 Greifswald).

Please note

The public is not permitted access to the university premises until further notice, i.e. no consultation hours etc. are taking place The University’s members of staff can still be contacted, preferably via email and – with restrictions – over the phone . If you only want to hand in documents, please send them to us either by post or by scanning them in and sending them via email.
