 "The experience of living and studying in another country
transformed the way I looked at the world and influenced my whole life" J. W. Fulbright

The International Office at the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences is the university's hub for international relations and is organized into two areas, "International Students" and "International Programs".

It handles admissions for international applicants, advises and supports exchange students from abroad, and coordinates the university's international partnerships. The International Office also provides current students at the university with information about opportunities for studying abroad and international internships, as well as funding programs and scholarship opportunities.

Before embarking on a degree course we inform and advise international applicants about studying at our university, about the admission requirements and the visa procedure that applies for students planning to study in Germany. Further information can be found on this website at "Incoming".

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).

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.

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.

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.
