UniKassel Details

The UniKassel supports international students in their preparation for study abroad stay at the Universität Kassel by offering a multimedia online portal including a number of components.


The timeline feature offers a systematic checklist to accompany students through programmable pre-departure activities, starting with the application, through questions concerning passports and visas, to arrival in Kassel. This checklist is customizable by organization, including the fixing of group departure dates and including activities specific to a student's enrolled group.

In cooperation with the resident director and other program staff, students following this timeline may be confident that they will get done what they need to get done on time and in the right way to insure that nothing will get in their way to a successful year abroad.
Editors of the exchange programs can configure the tasks and their sequence.


UniKassel-Content describes everyday and university life, offers information about Germany and the city of Kassel, and useful hints for living in the new cultural environment. UniKassel-Content includes a search / translate function.
