Promoting internationalization

As part of its staff development initiatives, Saarland University encourages its staff to improve and enhance their international skills and intercultural awareness. The International Office (Saarbrücken Campus, Building A4 4) can offer advice and assistance to those planning or preparing a work- or study-related stay abroad. The team at the International Office can also provide information on mobility funding and on international partnerships and exchange programmes.

The EU’s Erasmus+ programme offers funding opportunities for university employees who wish to undertake a training or study period at an education institution or relevant organization within the EU or at an Erasmus partner university outside the EU.

Administrative staff at Saarland University can develop their international skills by participating in european „Staff Week“ or by joining one of the many language courses offered at the university.

The Erasmus+ programm also funds teaching staff interested in spending time teaching at a higher education institution abroad. Additional funding opportunities can be found in the DAAD sholarship database.
