Welcome! Bienvenue! Bienvenidos! Benvenuto! 欢迎驾临! добро пожаловать! Herzlich Willkommen!
Our faculty welcomes students and guest scientists from all over the world. Several programmes out of about 100 altogether on Bachelor, Master and teaching degree level are international degree programmes, completely or partly taught in English and other languages other than German, or offering a double/joint degree. The international office of the faculty helps our students and researchers to realise a stay abroad for the purpose of studying, internship, or a research project, and to establish further international contacts. The FAU Services related to internationalisation provide further orientation.
In the years 2016 to 2020, the Bavarian State Ministry for Education, Science and the Arts will promote a cooperative study program in the field of digital humanities, which is planned by the Universities of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Regensburg and Munich, with an initial funding of up to 3.6 million euros.
The Department of Islamic-Religious Studies (DIRS) of FAU is one of five German centers for Islamic theology. Due to the positive interim evaluation, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research is now supporting the Erlangen facility for another five years.
The International Consortium for Research in the Humanities "Fate, Freedom and Prognostication” (IKGF) obtains a second funding period after successful evaluation and dedicated scientific work in an international context in the past years.
