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. The aim of the Code is to guarantee the quality of support given to international students at German universities. To this end, the Code formulates quality standards covering information on studying, advice and advertising, admission procedures and measures relating to support and follow-up support.

The Code represents a voluntary commitment by participating universities. The University of Münster signed up to the Code in June 2010. Foreign students can contact the relevant office at their university if the Code is not being adhered to. At Münster University this is the Vice-Rectorate for International Affairs.
