International profile

The University of Kassel views itself as a European university. It has an international focus and has networks around the world. Internationalisation plays a central role in both courses and teaching, but also in research and in the transfer of knowledge. The university laid down the principles for this in its first internationalisation concept as early as 2002. The university promises to pursue and introduce the goals of Europeanisation and internationalisation in its programmes at all levels. The university launched its fourth phase for further internationalisation in 2016.

Cooperation schemes and international networks

The University of Kassel maintains many international contacts, cooperation arrangements between faculties, active university partnership schemes and distance learning courses. All the opportunities are summarised in a database. This database provides both a summary of the complete cooperation network and also enables people to search for countries, partnership programmes and contact persons from the faculties in a focused manner.


If you are interested in setting up a cooperation scheme or intensifying an existing one, we will be happy to support you.
