Your arrivals are compulsory on 27th march, between 7 am and 11 pm.
If you can’t make it within this time frame, book your flight one day earlier, then book a night at a hostel in Frankfurt a. M. where you will presumably arrive by plane and arrive on 27th March between 7 am and 11 pm. If you made your way to the train-stop, cross the rail and you will see the campus where the dormitory is situated and tutors await you.
We have got a train stop directly opposite the university, so please make sure to set your destination to “Schmalkalden-Fachhochschule”.
Train schedule is available here: Deutsche Bahn
Welcome Days start on 28th march until march 31st and are mandatory for all new exchange students.
Within the Welcome Days we will explain everything concerning studying and living in Schmalkalden. On 3rd april lectures will start.
Every exchange student except EU-members needs to be insured in a German compulsory insurance. Our recommendations are: Barmer GEK or AOK. The costs are around 80€/month. We will guide you to the insurances within the Welcome Days.
