International contacts and relationships shape us. They broaden our horizons and are thus part of an open knowledge society and culture. That is why our University of Applied Sciences is a place where very different people meet to study, do research, work and live together. Academic and cultural exchange across disciplines and geopolitical borders is often an important prerequisite for new ideas, innovative approaches and critical reflection. In this sense, the goals of our university are inseparably linked to international and intercultural exchange.
