International Stammtisch

New at UDE? Wanna meet new people? Come to our International Stammtisch! This is where students from all over the world meet online in a relaxed atmosphere, exchange ideas, and have fun.

Our Stammtisch always takes place on the second Thursday of the month, from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM. If you want to participate, sign in here . It is the perfect opportunity to speak different languages and to gain intercultural competence while playing online games and having fun.


Further Information

We, the TSC tutors, are also there to party-cipate. Come around and join us! Students, alumni, people you know—everybody is welcome.

Due to the current situation, our international Stammtisch takes place online. Please be prepared and make sure there's enough beer in your fridge. Any questions? Send an e-mail to our tutor Hazem.


During the semester, the TSC-Sprechstunde is the place to be if you have any questions regarding your studies or student life in Duisburg or Essen. Every Friday at 4:00 PM, our tutors are happy to provide answers and advice or give you the contact details of the person who can help you.

This semester, the Sprechstunde takes place online. Registration is not necessary. On Fridays around 4:00 PM, just click on this link. Any questions? For further information, please contact Kyra.
