International Ambassador Program

The program has the following goal:

International alumni and Bachelor and Master students promote studying at the University of Vechta in their home countries, present the University of Vechta and are contact persons in their home countries. The Ambassador-Program is an innovative component in the university's international student marketing. It offers the opportunity to directly contact students and to spark interested for studying at the University of Vechta.

Ambassadors are an important connection between their home university/ home country and the University of Vechta. Their experiences and information, which they gained in Vechta, make them very interesting contact persons for other students, who are interested in spending time at the University of Vechta. They can describe their experiences, challenges, and achievements and provide help.

Ambassadors are supposed to give interested students the following information:

  • About the University of Vechta: What's special about the university? What advantages and subjects are offered? What's the structure of the university? Which important institution do they have to know?
  • About Studying: What does it mean to study in Vechta? What's new and great about it? What's the difference between studying in Vechta and at their home university?
  • About Vechta and Leisure Activities: Attractions, living conditions, offers like sport department, parties at university, etc.

The International Office will provide ambassadors with an information pack. Besides a presentation about the University of Vechta and Vechta you will find information about Germany, different flyers and broschures and our Go-out! Movie "Horizon". As an ambassador you will be an important part of the international network and are able to network with other people.
