Stress Management - Mental health strategies for international students

Studying or working on your doctorate abroad is a rewarding experience. However, moving to a new country with its own distinct culture and a new educational system, far away from friends and family, can also be very challenging and have an influence on your well-being. Many international students are stressed by the many tasks to complete and feel like they alone are struggling, not knowing that many others are experiencing the same difficulties.
Our workshop offers you the opportunity to talk to other international students about your experiences. We will focus on the difficulties of studying in Germany and work on finding solutions together. Additionally, you will receive useful tips on the topic of time management and project planning to help yourself by structuring your new tasks. Furthermore, you will learn how to deal with negative thoughts and you will get to know skills to improve your mood. Together we will work on strategies to improve your communications skills in challenging situations.
