Welcome Service for International Guests

This is the support internet webpage for international scholars and guest researchers at IPN. To make your integration into German working and everyday life as easy as possible, IPN now offers this support service. My name is Carol Sheehan and I am here to help you in the following areas:

  • Assistance in finding accommodation
  • Assistance in finding language courses and further education courses
  • Advice and assistance – (esp. with administrative authorities)
  • Correspondence/ translation help (e.g. with letters from the authorities)
  • Contact person for intercultural affairs


Additionally I am more than willing to offer my help as an intercultural trainer for outgoing staff members, who would like to know more about their guest culture.
