About us

The RIA (Department of International Affairs) is a department of the Students Council (StuRa) of the Otto-von-Guericke University and as such an organ of student self-administration. We are students from different disciplines at OvGU who participate in voluntary work in order to promote tolerance and the integration of international students at the university.         Therefore our core project, the buddy program, was initiated in 2012. It aims at supporting incoming international students during their first steps in Magdeburg.
