International Week 2018

Welcome at Jade University of Applied Sciences

Jade University of Applied Sciences invites you and your colleagues to take part in the International Week from 23rd to 27th April 2018.

We would like to welcome teaching staff as well as non-teaching staff to offer guest lectures, to present their home universities at our students fairs and to participate in workshops, job-shadowing sessions and exciting social events.

The International Week will consolidate our fruitful cooperation and offer an interesting international and intercultural learning experience.


This year, we chose “Diversity” as the main topic of our International Week, as nowadays this theme seems to be more relevant than ever. There will be lectures and workshops on different topics related to our main theme, which are also meant to serve as an open platform for an exchange of experience. Please feel free to contribute to these sessions with your own ideas, experiences and current topics!

You 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. Also, we would be very happy if you offered lectures yourself. Please contact Nele Hellmold in the International Office for detailed arrangements. If you are an Erasmus+ partner, we’ll be happy to sign a staff mobility agreement for teaching or for training.

Furthermore, we will meet for social events in order to refresh our contacts or to find new partners.

Also, you will have the chance to get to know our three campuses and their surroundings as well as the beautiful East Frisian Island Langeoog.
