Semester programme

The RUBiss team publishes a semester programme every term. It lists the various events, workshops and excursions Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) has to offer. Tutors and German students are also present at all the events, giving you the opportunity to gain a lot of new contacts.
This is the ideal way to get to know Bochum and Germany in general, and to meet German and foreign students.
You can pick up a printed copy of the programme in the RUBiss-Team's office.
We offer you a varied programme of fun-filled events and excursions in every semester. We look forward to seeing you.
The events for the winter semester will be issued in time!
