"Internationalisation" is of key importance at Schmalkalden University. The focus here is on the exchange and recruitment of international students; in addition, there are activities for the mobility of lecturers as well as international research cooperations. All measures are in line with the overarching university internationalisation strategy, which leads to faculty-specific measures and approaches. The internationalisation strategy is currently being revised in the course of a multi-stage deliberative process and is supposed to be available by the summer semester 2019; the contact person for this is the Head of the International Office, Dr Marcus Hornung. In the meantime, reference is made to the ERASMUS Policy Statement, which reflects the orientation of the university in the ERASMUS area.
