Ausländer*innenvertretung (AV)

Ausländer*innenvertretung, or the Foreign Representation is a group of students elected by the foreign students of RWTH Aachen University, to represent their interests in the Student Parliament. We are elected to represent international students at the university. We offer legal help, events in order to help you meet new people, and courses to learn something new!


Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are currently only accepting emails and phone calls. Please send us an email at with your inquiries.

We offer legal consultations with a lawyer (free of charge), every 2 weeks. Please schedule this with us via email.

Visas / Legal documents

Please note that at the current time, the Foreigner’s office is experiencing a high demand of inquiries. No negative consequences will come to those, who have made an appointment before the expiration date on their documents. However, if you are planning on switching (for example student visa to working visa), please start the process earlier.

We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our website.
In the meantime, we will post all information and events on our instagram: @
