National Code of Conduct on Foreign Students at German Universities

The National Code of Conduct was drawn up in the spring of 2010, taking as its model similar documents from the Netherlands, Australia, UK, France, USA, Canada and New Zealand. Its aim is to guarantee the quality of support given to international students at German universities. To this end, the Code formulates quality standards with respect to information on studying, advice, advertising, admission procedures, academic supervision and follow-up support measures.

The National Code of Conduct on Foreign Students at German Universities represents a voluntary commitment by the participating signatories. The University of Münster adopted the Code in June 2010. Foreign students can contact the office at their host university if they believe university officials are not adhering to the Code. At the University of Münster, this is the Vice-Rectorate for International Affairs.
