We are your central contact for all international issues and works closely with the university administration on strategic internationalization.

We advise students and doctoral candidates on the organization of their international studies and internships. We offer international students and applicants support for questions regarding applications, general orientation at the university, and all questions regarding university studies, legal information, and personal issues.
