The International Office offers this orientation programme free of charge to Erasmus+, SEMP, GUC and Exchange Students from our <link en io mob-in planning-mobility exchange-partners internal-link>partner universities.
We regret that Free Movers and Erasmus+ Trainees cannot participate, not even on a fee-paying basis.
The EUF is a volunteer student group which organizes extra-curricular activities, not only for Erasmus+ students - all exchange students, in fact all international and German students of Ulm University are welcome.
They organize a variety of activities throughout the year, such as a city rallye and a welcome party. During the semester, they keep up the tradition of the German Stammtisch (regular's table), which is held in different bars. And sometimes, they offer day trips or weekend excursions.
