European visits (Erasmus)

Visits worldwide

Global mobility programmes in higher education strive to achieve a variety of goals. Mobility within existing partnerships can help intensify collaboration, promote the creation of new partnerships, or serve as the basis for arranging guest lectureships and (foreign) research visits.

Practical information

Here you will find information to help you prepare for your visit abroad, e.g. on language courses for university instructors. You will also find links to info material about the University and the city of Münster, which you can take along and share with your foreign partners.

Intercultural workshops

Due to a steadily growing number of foreign students, the University of Münster has become a multicultural working environment. Intercultural competence is now a key qualification which everyone at the University will need in the future.
