It’s almost spring again and soon, a new semester will begin! That of course also means a new O-Phase is just around the corner! In fact, the O-Phase for the summer term of 2017 will happen from March 19 to 26, 2017, so mark this week in your calendars! 😉
In case you are wondering now: “What is an O-Phase?!” — well, the international O-Phase is basically the orientation week for all new international students at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. It is organized by us, the AK Erasmus (a voluntary student organization), in cooperation with the International Students Office (IStO), and a lot of voluntary student tutors!
The O-Phase is the start to your year (or semester) abroad here in Karlsruhe! In addition to getting to know the city, the university and all of its facilities, you will have the chance to get in contact with all the other foreign students coming to study abroad in Karlsruhe this semester. You will meet current students during the O-Phase who will guide you as voluntary tutors throughout the week (or perhaps for your entire stay) in order to make sure you get a good start into your time abroad 🙂
By now you are hopefully excited already and wondering “How can I be part of this?”. It’s easy! Just go to our official O-Phasen Website, and click on “Sign up to O-week”! On this website, you will of course also find a lot more information about the week, e.g. a detailed schedule of all events, a list of useful links, and general information about life in Karlsruhe and studying at KIT. What are you still waiting for? 😉

After we have settled into our new office, we are finally able to offer regular Sprechstunden (office hours) again! The next Sprechstunde will be held on Tuesday, January 31, from 13:00 till 14:00 o’clock in our new office in the former “Infektbau”, next to the Alte Kinderklinik, where the IStO is located. For a map and a more detailed description how to find us, check out our Contact Us-section.
So if you need help with your Erasmus-application, want to buy an Erasmus-Karlsruhe hoodie, or just want to check out our new office and say Hi to your favorite AK Erasmus people, please don’t hesitate and just come stop by on Tuesday! 🙂
