About Bauhaus International App

Together with the International Office, Bauhaus Internationals and The Weimar International Network our team developed a digital platform that is a meeting point for all international students.

We developed an Application that transformed the Bauhaus-Universität, in Weimar, Germany, into an internationally and digitally connected space.

The App is intended to support international students during their first, busiest days in Weimar by facilitating an easy transitional experience. There is everything from registration to housing to using the German washing machines. This acts as a continuous companion during their stay in Weimar.

Students’ experiences, stories, networks, images, talks and information related to international studies at Bauhaus-University Weimar and worldwide will be accessible via the App.

No longer will students have to worry about not being able to find street signs or not making the Visa Office appointments. We included everything we learned by listening to current internationals’ personal experiences. We learned of the simple but annoying problems people encounter when moving to a completely new environment. We understood that there are so many different issues other than just the language barrier.

With this App, a student should now be able to enjoy their transitional experience, instead of worrying if they are missing something.
