N.I.C.E. (Network & International Culture Exchange)

Our „nice“ club was founded in 2015 and has been growing ever since. We co-operate with the International Office (IO) and support the integration of international exchange and degree students at THI and the whole region.

Who are we?

We are a diverse group consisting of students with many different study subjects and nationalities. It is our aim to enable an integration as smooth as possible for international students – however, having fun is just as important to us!

What do we do?

Connect people from all over the world

  • Arrange excursions and trips
  • Conduct cultural exchange events
  • Bring international and German students together
  • Strengthen the international community in Ingolstadt
  • Support the incoming international students

Some impressions of our activities

You can join and support our team in the following areas:

There are several tasks connected to the Buddy Programme: Become a Buddy and help international students find their way before their arrival in and during their first weeks in Ingolstadt. Act as a translator for smaller groups of students during appointments, for example in the town hall. Or help co-ordinating the programme as a whole to make sure nothing goes wrong!
