2012 saw the start of a new round of exchanges:
Under the motto "Help for Students", the head and a member of the Student Grants department, a member of the Crous social counseling team as well as a member of the Clermont-Ferrand universities' social counseling team visited their German colleagues in Regensburg and Deggendorf during April 23rd to 27th, 2012. Two staff members of the Central Student Counseling Office in Regensburg joined the discussion round which, in addition to financial support options for students and the various structures in the departmental organization, focused on psychological counseling and concrete assistance for handicapped students.
During May 25th to 29th, 2012, five student members from various active ensembles of Theater an der Universität travelled to Clermont-Ferrand, accompanied by a member of the Studentenwerk's Cultural Promotion Department. In Clermont-Ferrand they joined up with four French students from two dormitory theater groups to attend a workshop on bodywork and acting. In addition to visiting the various venues for student cultural projects in Clermont-Ferrand, they shared an experience in joint theatre work in the form of movement and extra-linguistic communication.
