Studying Abroad

An open door, a helping hand

Every semester the IUBH is fortunate to welcome international students from our partner universities around the world for  full study programmes and for exchanges of one or two semesters. The International Office is the first point of contact for all international students.

International students benefit from the unique opportunity of being able to fully study in English in Germany. At the same time they’re able to learn or improve their German language skills and their understanding of German life and culture. Their presence on campus and their contribution to the academic and social life here are an invaluable part of the international atmosphere and learning environment the IUBH prides itself on.

With the assistance of a team of student volunteers, the International Office strives to make arriving and living in Germany easy and comfortable for international students. Welcome and information sessions make the transition to another culture and system of studying as smooth as possible.

Exchange students must be nominated by their home institutions for studies at the IUBH. Pre-nomination information about the IUBH is available at the international offices of our partner universities to help students in their study abroad applications. Once our partner universities confirm which students have been nominated for studies at the IUBH, we receive the student applications and are in direct contact with exchange students to assist in pre-arrival and other matters.

International students who have met IUBH admission requirements and who have signed a contract to study at the IUBH may contact the International Office. We help with academic, pre-arrival and arrival matters. We also provide assistance for students who want to spend a semester at one of our partner universities. Our door is always open for all international students at the IUBH, and we are happy to help where needed.

Our doors remain open for all international students throughout their studies at the IUBH if further assistance is needed.
