The International Office

The International Office (IO) is responsible for the university's international activities and it provides support for international guests. It functions as the contact point for all things international at the university and offers advice and counselling for both foreign students studying in Bochum, and students at the university wishing to study or find an internship abroad.

We also provide assistance and support to faculties and departments when organising visiting scholarships. Last but not least, we specialise in developing and maintaining international partnerships with foreign universities and institutes.
