The International Office coordinates Schmalkalden University's international relations and maintains contact with partner universities and other institutions involved in international mobility. In addition, it manages the recruitment and admission of foreign applicants, international university marketing and the support of foreign students and guests of Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences. In cooperation with the Centre for Foreign Languages, the International Office also offers comprehensive courses for international students, including German courses, international summer schools and intensive programmes, both during the semester and in the semester break.
Internally, the International Office provides information on opportunities for study- or activity-related stays abroad and supports you in planning and implementing them. These activities are supported by the acquisition and management of relevant third-party funds, in particular from the European Union and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
