Welcome to HafenCity Universität Hamburg

The international office advises students who are interested in an international experience, such as a semester at a foreign university or an internship abroad. In addition, it maintains ties with numerous universities and organisations, which provide information about international study or internship opportunities, as well as financing a stay abroad.

The information on our website cannot replace personal advising – get in touch with me, come by the office. I look forward to hearing from you!

Applications for the 2022/2023 funding year can be submitted until 31 January 2022. All information on the application procedure and the necessary requirements can be found on the Hamburg Scholarship website: www.hamburg-stipendium.de/bewerbung.

HCU Welcome Buddy Program - Students wanted!

The Welcome Buddy Program at HCU Hamburg is looking for students from Germany and abroad who want to get involved.

International students who are newly admitted to HCU often have numerous questions about studying at HCU and living in Hamburg.
