Welcome Centre

Our alumni activities begin with initial contact and continue for the duration of your reseach visit in Münster. If you have any questions, please contact us first!

The Welcome Centre of the International Office supports international researchers and their hosting faculties with a broad range of information and consultation services. Our staff would be happy to help you plan and carry out each phase of your research stay in Münster.

Geographically anchored

RE.AL is regionally orientated to the goals of the Internationalisation Strategy [de] of the University of Münster.

Brazil Centre [de]

The University of Münster supports more research collaborations with Brazil than any other German university. In 2010, the University established the Brazil Centre to oversee all of its Brazil-relevant research projects and programmes.

The staff of the Brazil Centre in Münster provides advice and assistance to all University facilities regarding research activities in Brazil, research transfer, teaching and studies. The University also operates an office in São Paolo which serves as the central contact point for all researchers on location.

Centre for Europe

Europe is the place of origin and destination for most academically mobile researchers at the University of Münster. The German-Dutch border region represents a particularly important place of academic collaboration for the University.

The Centre for Europe aims to consolidate, support, justify and encourage all European-relevant activities at the University of Münster. The University also maintains its own liaison office in Brussels.
