Poster session 204

Applied internationalisation? The current state of internationalisation at Universities of Applied Sciences in Germany

  • Thursday 26 Sept
  • Hall 3, Level 0, Messukeskus Expo and Convention Centre

Over the past 25 years, Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS) in Germany and their model of practice-oriented education have continued to grow in importance and popularity. At the same time, little is known about the UAS’ approach to internationalisation: are UAS as international as research universities? What are their priorities, motives and obstacles when it comes to internationalisation? And what new possibilities for international cooperation arise from this?
