Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Department of History

Mentoring programs and Orbis Club

There are several different mentoring programs at HU that make it easier for international students and Erasmus students to join the university and live in Berlin. Here you can find an overview of the International Office.


Erasmus students of the Institute of History (IfG) can access the following resources free of charge:

  • Studis4Studis: In this mentoring programme, full-time German students help international students to find their way around the university on a voluntary basis. Your mentor can help you with organising your studies, finding your way around, planning your free time in Berlin, finding accommodations, choosing a course and much more. Here you can register for free.
  • International Club (Orbis Humboldtianus): The HU International Club organizes introductory events for international students, a language tandem exchange, a regulars' table and a visa service. In addition, the club is open Monday to Friday, where you can ask questions about studying, etc.


More information about student life in Berlin can be found in the Guide for International Students.
