It was a wonderful day when I received an admission letter from TU Graz, but after that amazing day, a lot of paperwork was waiting for me. Especially, during the ongoing coronavirus restrictions made that paperwork even harder, nevertheless with the help of the Welcome Center of the University, I could overcome all the issues and received a positive notification from the Immigration authority. Unfortunately, it is not that easy to find trustworthy information on the internet, but when I needed any help or a piece of advice, the Welcome center was always there with quick responses to my emails.
After I arrived in Graz, I got all the needed information on opening a bank account and taking insurance, residence permit card, etc. A lot of interesting events and meetings are organized by the Welcome center and I find them very helpful for new students. Fortunately, I attended one of those events and made some new friends. I am grateful for their help and I already feel at home with their support.
