As a cosmopolitan university, Furtwangen University encourages both students and members of university staff to participate in international academic and cultural exchange. Our degree programmes are largely geared towards the opportunities and demands of an international environment. As a result our degrees are becoming more attractive and have gained an excellent reputation worldwide. Intensive contacts with partner universities, institutions and companies abroad strengthen our international focus and enable the strategic development of a global cooperation network. The mobility of students and staff is supported by the university through exchange programmes, international collaborative research projects, tri- and binational double degree programmes and internationally and practice-oriented degree programmes.
