Tamara Brinkmann

Hey everyone!
My name is Tamara Brinkmann and I’m more than happy to welcome you in the beautiful city of Freiburg, probably the sunniest city in Germany!
I have been living here for more than two years and study mathematics and geography to become a teacher. Before my studies I did a voluntary social year in Ecuador and during my studies I studied for one semester in Gothenburg in Sweden. Hence, I know what it means to be new to another country or another city.
In the beginning you are quite nervous and excited about the upcoming time. At the same time you feel a little lost without friends or contact persons and are overwhelmed by new impressions, bureaucracy and all the documents you have to complete in another language.
To make your start in Freiburg easy I would like to help you and to show you how to find your way in city and university. No matter what’s on, administrative assistance, search for an apartment, sports, parties or questions about everyday-life:  you can always contact us!
I hope to get to know you soon :)

Dear international students,

Welcome to the University of Freiburg!

My name is Julika, I’ve lived in Freiburg since 2013 and I study law. I still enjoy living here – I love the sun and the black forest just around the corner. As a uni town, Freiburg is really lively and there is always something going on for everyone.

During my studies I lived in Chile for a year. To live in a foreign country for a while and to meet and interchange ideas with people from different countries and cultures was exciting and enriching. There are, however, also always a few questions and problems to deal with. Where do I live? How do I register? Where and how will I meet new people? What kinds of activities does the university offer? Etc.

We would like to assist you with finding answers to all of these questions.

So get in contact – we are happy to help!
