International Week 2023

Jade University of Applied Sciences invites its colleagues from partner universities to take part in the International Week from 24th to 28th April 2023.

We would like to welcome teaching staff as well as non-teaching staff to participate in a colourful programme and to present their home universities to our students, professors and staff.

The International Week will consolidate our fruitful cooperation and offer an interesting international and intercultural learning experience, for our guests as well as all members of Jade University.


Under this year's motto "Erasmus - chances & challenges", we would like to welcome teaching staff and non-teaching staff to offer guest lectures and to present their home universities, as well as in job-shadowing sessions and exciting social events.

Our guests will have the possibility to meet colleagues from different departments, to get an insight into their working areas as well as their current international projects and to take part in lectures or to give lectures themselves.

Please contact Sarah Oetken in the International Office for detailed arrangements. In case of our Erasmus+ partners, we will be happy to sign a staff mobility agreement for teaching or for training.

We will meet for social events in order to refresh our contacts or to find new partners. Also, our guests will have the chance to get to know our campuses and their surroundings.
