Bauhaus-Universität Weimar is an international university that is committed to the idea of Bauhaus and therefore has a traditionally international orientation. Our aspiration is to combine science and technology with art and design and an international dimension and that leads us to run a path that is unique in Germany. The aspiration for internationalisation is thus no empty phrase but an integrative component of our philosophy and approach. 

In order to assert its position at the international cutting edge, it is the university’s strategy to internationalise in all areas. Especially in teaching, research, and creative-artistic development, the international orientation should improve through different means and promoting instruments. On that account, internationalization was enshrined into management by the president of the university. Moreover, the position of the Strategic Internationalisation Officer was created. Her task is to coordinate and revise the internationalization strategy and to implement and support diverse measures.
