"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 term 2020; 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.
