The International Office at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences is the university's hub for international relations and coordinating the university's international partnerships.

We oversee international degree-seeking students, refugees intending to (re)commence their studies and interntional exchange students. We inform and advise current students about opportunities to study or intern abroad and provide information on available funding programs and scholarship opportunities.

The International Office also supports members of the teaching and administrative staff interested in going abroad or looking to invite scholars from abroad.

Stay up to date: the Language Center and the International Office at Kurt-Schumacher-Ring send out emails with updates on international issues (language courses, scholarship applications, events, etc.) to anybody who subscribed to the Stud.IP event HSRM_International. Please subscribe, if you would like to obtain this information.

The RheinMain University of Applied Sciences condemns the attack on Ukraine and would like to support those affected in the best possible way.

Advice and support of the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences

The word "mobility" has long been on everyone's lips, but it's much more than that; today's students are already highly mobile, both during their studies and later when working. A coherent internationalization strategy is thus indispensable for universities to enhance their attractiveness to prospective students, academics and partners from research and industry. High quality degree programs, teaching and research can only be assured by looking at the big picture beyond national borders.

With this in mind, from 2012 to 2014 a project group drew up an internationalization strategy for the university, consisting of a vision as well as specific goals and measures on how to achieve it.

The Vision

  • Internationalism is a key building block in the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences' overall strategy and a prerequisite for high quality studies, teaching and research.
  • Internationalism increases the university's attractiveness to students, academics and partners in research, education and industry.
  • RheinMain University of Applied Sciences supports and embodies internationalism on all levels and in all areas.
  • The university promotes international encounters and exchange activities – these experiences inspire participants personally, academically and artistically, and equip them for success in studying and working in a globalized world.


A total of 14 goals aim to render the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences more international, simplify processes and introduce standards in the university's administration and on the individual faculty level. The goals and how they can be implemented through specific measures is explained in the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences Internationalization Strategy (PDF 1MB) (in German only).

The departmental international coordinators are looking forward to assisting and providing you with information for your planned stay abroad. The duties and responsibilities of the departmental international coordinators include establishing contacts with universities abroad, maintaining contacts with scientists at overseas universities, inviting guest lecturers, visiting foreign faculties and academics, etc.

Contact to the departmental international coordinators

RheinMain University of Applied Sciences is taking a holistic approach to internationalization that encompasses measures for integrating an international and intercultural dimension into all areas of the University. Internationalization is key for offering excellent teaching and research.

To underline this, RheinMain University of Applied Sciences successfully underwent the audit “Internationalisierung der Hochschulen” ("Internationalization of Higher Education Institutions") by the German HRK (“German Rectors’ Conference”) in 2021. The audit aims to systematically analyse the university’s current level of internationalization and to suggest paths for further development.

Further information such as the self-report written as part of the auditing process and recommendations for the further development of RheinMain University’s internationalization strategy is available to our staff on our internal pages. If you have any questions regarding the audit or internationalization at the University in general, please do not hesitate to contact the International Office.

We cooperate with numerous partner universities all over the world. The partners are listed by country, the areas of cooperation are listed next to the respective partners.

ERASMUS+ (term 2014 – 2020) is the new EU program aimed at promoting general and vocational education, youth and sport. The program involves supporting students and graduates intending to spend a period of study abroad at a ERASMUS partner university or an internship at a company in the ERASMUS area. Mobility measures for lecturers and non-teaching staff at partner universities can also be funded.
