International Office


Internationalization Strategy

The international cooperations are coordinated centrally at our University. The maintenance and enhancements of those cooperations lie in the responsibility of the vice president for International matters and the International Office (IO) with participation of the degree programs. The most important goals and  focuses of the measures of internationalization are represented in the Internationalization Strategy of the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven.

Measures of Internationalization

The International Office supports the degree programs with the conception and organization of their efforts to internationalize. The international and the ERASMUS cooperations as well as contacts to organizations, which promote the international exchange, are administered here. Lecturers who want to initiate new cooperations or who plan an educational stay at a partner university, can find assistance here.

Organization of stays abroad - Division Outgoing Students

Furthermore, the International Office assists students with the organization of a study-oriented stay abroad and coordinates the stay before, while and after the mobility activity. Students receive usefull tips and lots of information about the various financing options, grant programs and application deadlines here. Additionally, there is plenty of information material about the partner universities, countries and language programs provided. Within information events the International Office briefs regularly about current offers and formalities.

Assisting international students - Division Incoming Students

The International Office is also the central contact point for foreign students, who either study one semester at our university or who want to complete their whole studies here. Already before their arrival, the students will receive lots of useful information by the International Office, which allows a smooth start in Bremerhaven and at the University. The incoming students will be supported on-site with the handling of all necessary formalities, the search for accommodation and other questions regarding the topics of living and studying in Bremerhaven. Joint excursions, events and parties will help the students to get settled in the new country and at the university.
