The Akademisches Förderungswerk has a great partnership program that brings international students together with citizens of Bochum. Each student can get a sponsor with whom he/she explores the city and its surroundings, cooks together or gets accompaniment at doctor's visits. Often, the local mentors are older than the students and thus a valuable cultural exchange can take place.
