Tutors of the International Office

"My name is Janis and I have been studying architecture and interior design at the Faculty of Architecture since 2019. During the winter semester 2021/22 I started working at the International Office as a tutor because I wanted to help exchange students during their time abroad.
I have been an exchange student myself in Lisbon, Portugal. This experience was extremely formative and represents the basic motivation for my work at the International Office.
My language skills include fluent English and basic Portuguese.
Don’t hesitate to contact me, I am always happy to help!"​

"My name is Sophia and I have been studying Communication Design at the Faculty of Design since 2019. I was an exchange student in Denmark for six months and it was a great and educational experience. It is enriching to meet people from different cultures and learn from each other – that was one of the reasons that motivated me to work as a tutor in the International Office. I am also happy to offer incoming students the same experience and help that I received during my stay abroad. I look forward to supporting and helping you during your stay in Düsseldorf. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me."
