Study in Merseburg

Thank you for your interest in studying at Hochschule Merseburg. Welcome at HoMe! Here in Merseburg we welcome students from all over the world. To make your stay in Merseburg as pleasant as possible we have compiled some important information in our International Brochure

Our Buddy Service is designed to make it easier for our international exchange students to quickly get accommodated and feel at home in Merseburg. The “buddies” are German and international students from the university who are familiar with Merseburg and the university. They help incoming international students with the formalities of registering with the city and daily life issues. They also organize trips and other social events.
