The Department of International Relations (International Office) actively supports staff and students of Bauhaus-Universität Weimar in the preparation and drafting of cooperation agreements with partner institutions in and outside Europe.
We would also like to support our students in initiating partnerships. The prerequisite is always the interest and support of a professor at your faculty who will later take over the supervision of the partnership. If you as a student are interested in establishing a partnership, please contact a professor of your choice and/or the International Counsellor of your faculty. Please note that a contract with the desired university is not a basic requirement for an exchange. At any time, you have the possibility to apply as a freemover at the university of your choice. The staff at the International Office will be happy to advise you on this.
Please note that, depending on the respective bureaucratic framework conditions in the partner country, the preparation of a contract usually takes between two and eight months. Long processing times apply in particular to the initiation of non-European partnerships.
Thank you very much for your interest in collaborating with Bauhaus-Universität Weimar!
Bauhaus-Universität Weimar maintains partnerships with more than 250 higher-education institutions worldwide.
The most common type of partnership undertaken by the faculties of Bauhaus-Universität Weimar is a “Cooperation for Academic Cooperation and Exchange”, which provides a basis for the exchange of students (bachelor, master, PhD) and staff, as well as joint projects.
Please note: in general, it is one or more of the four faculties (Architecture and Urbanism, Civil Engineering, Media, Art and Design) at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar that is party to the agreement, and not the university as a whole. This approach helps to ensure the compatibility of the academic programs between the partners.
Please note: the Department of International Relations only initiates contract negotiations if a professor of Bauhaus-Universität Weimar signals his/her interest in cooperating. The contracts will be prepared by the Department of International Relations and negotiated and drawn up in cooperation with the partner.
