Support with Building and Expanding International Partnerships
The International Office coordinates the collaboration of RWTH Aachen and its faculties with universities abroad, supports the initiation of partnerships and cooperation and provides organizational support. The guidelines available for download on this web page provide you with a first overview and guidance.
Erasmus+ guidelines for subject-specific coordinators within faculties, research groups, and institutes
The International Office coordinates all of the Erasmus+ based student mobility, and it has therefore designated one person to act as Institutional Erasmus+ Coordinator.
Since Erasmus+ partnerships are, however, always subject-specific and based on subject-specific, bilateral agreements, at least one other person from the respective faculty or research group is needed to attend to the Erasmus+ partnerships as well.
The subject-specific Erasmus+ Coordinator is also known as Departmental Coordinator and as such, she or he is tasked with tending to anything related to Erasmus+ program student mobility.
In order to make this task easier for you, we have put together a set of guidelines, albeit in German, which should answer the – from our point of view – most important questions you may now have. Have a look in the yellow box on the right under "Erasmus+ Leitfaden" if you are interested.
Apart from student exchange, the University offers exchange opportunities for lecturers and administrative staff. For further information, please refer to our Staff Mobility and Teaching Staff Mobility web pages.
Our recommendations for the conversion of grades attained for exams completed abroad can be found at the Recalculation of Grades web page.
RWTH Aachen University is a vibrant place where excellent research is being conducted. At the University's institutes, a large number of international doctoral students, postdocs and researchers are active in teaching and research. For information on formal issues concerning international researchers, such as the registration form for internationals, please refer to our Welcome Center web pages.
Round Table International Mobility
The round table "International Mobility" was initiated in 2012 by the International Office and approved by the Vice-Rector for Teaching. It seeks to bring together all actors concerned with international mobility, including the International Office, the faculties, the departments, the divisions of the central university administration, representatives of the student body, and other relvant groups. The aim of the round table is to discuss and coordinate change processes and developments and share information on best practices.
We kindly invite the mobility coordinators from the faculties and departments, student representatives from the Senate and the AstA Student Council, representatives from the Offices of the Deans of Academic Affairs, and the Vice-Rector for Teaching to participate.
If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Sara Wigger
