Social Media

Life without smartphones and social media has become unimaginable. It's no wonder then, that the International Office also uses social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram .

We are keen to keep you updated about what’s going on in the international world of LUH, as well as about upcoming events, insights into studying abroad, the lives of international students at LUH, and our range of services.

Instagram takeovers

On our Instagramaccount @internationalofficeluh you can regularly follow what a stay abroad with LUH or life at LUH and in Hannover looks like. You can find all past takeovers in our story highlights. Have fun browsing!

Information about Instagram takeovers

Are you about to spend a semester abroad, ready for action, and would like to document memorable moments during your stay? Are you an international student coming to Hannover in order to complete your degree or part of your degree at LUH? Is your smartphone always at your side? Do you know your way around Instagram stories?

We are looking for volunteer LUH ambassadors to document and share their period abroad / at LUH with fellow students.
