The AKAFÖ office for cultural affairs, BOSKOP, has been in charge of cultural diversity at Bochum’s universities for over 25 years. In collaboration with creative and dedicated students, projects are initiated, organised and promoted. Moreover, BOSKOP is an organiser: the office oversees and organises festivals and mass evens, as well as smaller line-ups and events. Every semester, new courses and workshops are scheduled – they always target the students’ needs and often set new trends. The international affairs segment is based on three pillars: consultancy for international students, partnerships and, first and foremost, the organisation of international cultural events. Consequently, sponsorship programmes and exchange programmes are part of the offering, such as the AKAFÖ’s international children’s festival. BOSKOP is both imaginative and scientific. And well worth a look!
