International Office

The international office is a service facility of the Faculty of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Theology. Here you get advice in the planning of your stay abroad or in your cooperation with universities worldwide. It is the starting point for students, academics and scholars from abroad coming to the faculty. Kerstin Maurer is your contact for all questions concerning the internationalisation in the fields of teaching and research. You are welcome to contact her with any questions.
