The University of Oldenburg has a strong commitment to engage with other nations and cultures: visitors from more than 110 countries study, teach, and do research here together and make the campus an international, cross-cultural, and open-minded place.
If you are an international student looking to study at Oldenburg University, a wide range of information and student support services including German language courses are provided to help you have a rewarding and fulfilling experience while in Oldenburg.
Equally, Oldenburg University offers information and guidance to international research and academic staff.
The University of Oldenburg has successfully been supporting international mobility opportunities for its students and academic staff for years by participating in various exchange programmes such as Erasmus+. The number of students considering studying abroad as part of their course or doing an internship in a foreign country is rising constantly. So, too, is the number of scholars, scientists, and academics going abroad for research work or teaching assignments.
To help preparing a stay abroad and to continue establishing further international projects and co-operation agreements, Oldenburg University provides a variety of support and information services including international funding programmes.
English-taught degree programmes for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, the promotion of interdisciplinary research, the encouragement and maintenance of memberships in international networks, the establishment of world-wide co-operation agreements, the integration of research into higher education curricula, and the support specifically for junior researchers have helped build an international presence in science and academia and have made us a globally connected university.
Oldenburg University is keen to enrich its international profile and to provide enhanced international learning and working environments to its students and academics. It has therefore designed an Internationalisation Strategy and participates in the audit “Internationalisation of Universities” organised by the HRK.
For its outstanding commitment and service in organizing student and teaching mobility with its international cooperations, the University of Oldenburg received the European Quality Award 2006.
