UDE International Staff Week


UDE International Staff Week 2017 for administrative assistants/secretaries

It is our pleasure to invite you to the International Staff Week at University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE), which will take place from 27.11.2017 until 30.11.2017. The language of communication will be English.

Topic and Programme?

The staff week will focus on internationalisation for administrative assistants/office managers/secretaries. Throughout the week we will share our experiences in several workshops and learn from each other. The programme will give the opportunity for in-depth discussions within the various fields of administrative work and internationalisation such as a comparison of administrative procedures, career services and welcome services for international guest researchers. Furthermore, we will offer you a job shadowing experience with  your counterpart at the UDE.

Please find  the preliminary programme of the International Staff Week here.


The programme is directed to administrative assistants/office managers/secretaries working at universities.
