UDE International Guest Lecturer Programme 2021/2022

The International Office invites applications for short term lectureships of non-European guest lecturers at UDE for the academic year 2021/2022. The deadline for proposals is 22 November 2021.

Objective of the Programme

The programme aims to introduce students as early as possible to foreign curricula and teaching methods, to encourage students to spend a part of their study time abroad and to enable also those students to experience internationalisation, who will not spend a term abroad due to various reasons. As the courses will  - as a rule – be taught in a foreign language, students have the possibility to improve their language skills.

Besides the contribution to the internationalisation of the curricula, the programme offers the opportunity for scientific exchange and the establishment and expansion of exchange and research cooperations.
