International Week 2024

Jade University of Applied Sciences invites its colleagues from partner universities to take part in the International Week from 22nd to 26th April 2024.

The yearly event gives our guests the opportunity to offer lectures, present your home universities, and take part in job shadowing sessions. This is all in addition with the option to take part in workshops which revolve around the ERAMUS+ program and many other exciting events.  

Through our International Week we can increase communication and cooperation while offering an interesting international and intercultural learning experience. 


Under this year's motto "Languages and Diversity", 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 International Week aims to bring together colleagues from different departments and universities so we can best collaborate on international projects and present lectures. 

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.

Furthermore, we will meet for lunches and dinners to talk with our guests and promote new partnerships. The week will also include tours of our study locations and cities so you can best get to know Jade Hochschule
