International Week 2019

Jade University of Applied Sciences invites its colleagues from partner universities to take part in the International Week from 23rd to 27th April 2019.

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 "Together is better", we would like to welcome teaching staff and non-teaching staff to offer guest lectures, to present their home universities and to take part in a workshop on the development of internationalisation aims and strategies, 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 Nele Hellmold 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 three campuses and their surroundings as well as the beautiful East Frisian Island Langeoog.
