„Arbeitskreis International“ is a wonderful German word for what we are actually doing. The AKI club international e.V. got founded in 1999 and is a registered association since 2004. In 2007, we joined our umbrella organisation the Erasmus Student Network (ESN). ESN is a pan-European student organisation, which is represented in 40 countries at over 900 higher education institutes. A great thing, as like that, we can share experiences and knowledge with others. ESN Germany counts 34 sections at the moment and AKI is one of them.
Since then, generations of students care about international students at DIT. We organise the framework programme to their studies – of course not only for exchange students, but also for everyone else, who is interested. AKI is present already before the actual start of the semester during the orientation weeks. We organise a Welcome Party, a Bavarian Evening with a hike with torches, a Bavarian buffet and games at Krahwirt, a Pub Crawl in Deggendorf and most of the times two excursions. During the semester, a weekend trip can’t be missing. Also, smaller day trips, e.g. to the Kloster Weltenburg or the Christkindelsmarkt in Nuremberg are really appreciated.
We hope to see you around soon!
