Foyer International

Dear All,
Welcome to the summer semester 2020, a really NEW semester in all aspects!

We are the Foyer Team working as a subdivision of Göttingen University International Office. We provide a platform for all students, regardless of their nationality and background, to meet and spend quality time together in gatherings of their interest. All meetings and activities are always free and you are warmly welcome to join at any point.

Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, we offer our programs online on the Big Blue Button platform. Under this link to Big Blue Button you can join all of our programs always for free. Here is a list with the details:

Cultural Evenings, Let's Talk is a digital version of our traditional Cultural Evenings in Foyer International. We are going to talk to international students about their life and problems in Göttingen as well as about their own countries and traditions. We will stream our videos on University YouTube channel and other social media of Georg-August University!


As being known for hosting diverse nationalities, we have organized different cafes for language aficianados. You can join Caffè Italia, Typic German?!, and Café Español to improve your language skills by having direct contact with native speakers. These language workshops intend to extend the learning process from classrooms to a friendly and real-life situation where interesting aspects emerge.

On every Friday evenings, we offer Sitdown Comedy to cheer us up and leave us to greet the weekend with a smile. You can also put your acting and drawing skills to the test at the Theater Course or Painting Workshop. The courses offer you a chance to discover and display your secret talents! If you want to do yoga, you should definitely join our Yoga Workshop .


We wish you a wonderful semester and look forward to seeing you.

Your Foyer Team,
Mohsen, Merve, Elena and Elif
