Internationalisation of Administration (SAVE)

Supported by the Bavarian State Ministry for Education, Culture, Science and Art.

Project period: 1 April 2016 - 31 March 2022


Aims of the project:
All administrative processes concerning international guests and members of the university should be reviewed with this target group in mind. This means having all necessary documents available in at least English. We aim to develop the foreign-language and intercultural advice expertise and service focus of non-academic staff. The accessibility of the offices responsible for international services needs to be aligned more closely with the needs and requirements of this target group.

These project goals were derived from the workshop on the internationalisation strategy at Nuremberg Tech
and the results of the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) Audit on “University Internationalisation” carried out in 2015.

The Language Center advises the various organisational units of Nuremberg Institute of Technology on implementing the department-specific internationalisation strategy, and implements professional development measures to improve general language, university-related specialist language, and intercultural skills as part of its internal professional development programme for administrative staff. Furthermore, relevant administrative documents are also translated into English at the Language Center.
