The Ohm is a university with strong regional roots that understands its role in a globalised living, employment, and research community. Our aim is to offer our students degree programmes and a learning environment that provide access to applied research in today’s international context. Therefore, an international and intercultural orientation already forms a key component of life at the university; the development of this characteristic is anchored in our internationalisation strategy (Version 2023 / in English) / Internationalisierungsstrategie (Version 2024 / in German)

The following third-party funded projects support the implementation and continued development of the measures described in the strategy to advance internationality at the Ohm.

Internationalisation squared (2022 – 2023)

The Internationalisation squared (INT2) project implements and further develops the Ohm’s internationalisation strategy. Based on a comprehensive analysis of existing Erasmus university partnerships, three to five European partner universities will be selected with which institutionalized cooperation will be extended to the area of research and deepened in the area of education. INT2 aims to expand the catalogue of courses conducted in English at our technical Faculties and increase the number international research projects, e.g., within the framework of Horizon Europe. The long-term goal of these activities is to establish a European university network for comprehensive cooperation in all university fields of action.

INT2 is funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) in Module A of the UAS.International funding programme with funds from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) from 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2023. In this programme, the DAAD has been funding activities to advance internationality at universities of applied sciences since 2019. UAS.International has four funding modules; projects in Module A cover initiation and preparation purposes, which include the implementation and further development of internationalisation strategies as well as the establishment and expansion of networks.
