Tips for study and daily life: new DAAD-website for international students

10.02.2010
Interactive information on www.study-in.de

International Students can get detailed information about study and research opportunities in Germany on a new website now: recently the DAAD expanded its Internet services with the launch of http://www.study-in.de.

Designed as a modern and user-friendly website, it has a large selection of offers in German and English. It features an arsenal of Web 2.0 tools, such as an interactive map of Germany in which users can virtually "travel" to Berlin, a search engine for finding the right master's degree programme and the DAADblog where foreign students can post their impressions and experiences in Germany.

Users can also find answers to the most commonly asked questions about life and university study in Germany in ten video clips titled "Student Life", created in cooperation with the University of Mittweida and posted on the DAAD YouTube-channel. For those looking for a more personal contact, the DAAD Fair Ticker informs users about upcoming educational fairs in Germany and abroad. Study-in.de features a clearly-structured, straightforward design.

In addition to basic information about study-related issues, the website strongly focuses on life in Germany in general and gives deeper insights into German day-to-day life. In order to facilitate the start for international students, the DAAD set up a profile on Germany's largest social network "StudiVZ", where they can establish contacts to German students at their hosting university before arriving in Germany.

Study-in.de is financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and is closely linked with the "Information for Foreigners" section on http://www.daad.de, which registers more than three million page views per month. Furthermore, study-in.de cooperates with the German Rector's Conference (HRK) for its degree programme search tool. Study-in.de is the website of the "Study in Germany - Land of Ideas" campaign, whose goal is to raise public awareness of Germany as a country of academic excellence and attract more highly qualified foreign students to German universities.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
