Study partnerships

Would you like to master your daily study routine jointly with a partner and start cooperating internationally as a student?
InDiGU arranges and supports partnerships between german and international students!

InDiGU offers two types of study partnership:

  • Study Buddy partnerships, where international and Göttingen students of the same subject cooperate in their specific fields of study.
  • Academic Writing partnerships, where german and international students jointly develop their academic writing proficiency in scientific german, relating to their specific subject areas as well as on an interdisciplinary level.

Supporting programme
InDiGU offers a supporting programme for all study partnerships to encourage integration and social contacts beyond the daily study routine. More information are provided in the Foyer International programme.


Enrolments for subject-related partnerships are accepted by the InDiGU coordinators of your faculty. First, your name will be entered in a database. Then we will put you in contact with a partner in your subject area. Of course you can also enrol together with a partner. If your faculty does not have an InDiGU coordinator, you can also enrol directly with International Student Services.

The German-international academic writing partnerships are arranged and supervised by the international writing centre. You can enrol either individually or as a complete working or learning group.

Study partnerships as optional subjects for International Certificates and as a key qualification

You can also get credits for the study partnerships in optional subjects for an International Certificate. 6 internationalisation points (IPs) can be credited for each semester. For writing partnerships, you will be granted an additional 4 credits (ECTS), which you can also have credited towards your key qualifications. Some faculties offer the additional option of having subject-related partnerships credited towards your key qualifications.
