FAU Welcome App
In conjunction with FAU INTEGRA, the Innovation in Learning Institute developed a smartphone app in 2016 – 2017 that provides information and orientation to refugees and anyone else around the world who is interested in studying in Germany and at FAU in particular.
It includes everything you need to know about important topics from Germany and the Erlangen-Nuremberg Metropolitan Region, accreditation processes of qualifications and enrolment, to the fundamentals of academic writing, where to learn German and much more.
Each module contains information about cultural aspects and stereotypes as well as questions you can use to check your progress. The last module of the course is an assessment that users can use to check whether they are ready for starting a degree programme.
The modules are available in German or English. The app is available free of charge for iOS and Android.
The FAU Welcome app was nominated for the 2017 ‘delina’ innovation award for digital education.
