At the University of Bonn, the international orientation of research and
teaching has been a long standing tradition. We are committed to supporting the
initiatives of our academics to work together with colleagues from other
Universities and research institutions. And this is not least down to the fact
that we recognize that such research collaborations will greatly benefit both
students and post-graduates embarking on a University career.
This trend is confirmed by our leading position in the statistics on grants and fellowships awarded by such organisations as the DFG, DAAD and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. And our continually evolving international study programmes and bilingual or English-only courses are designed to ensure that the University of Bonn will continue to attract foreign students.
This clearly explains why the proportion of foreign students at the University of Bonn has been significantly higher than the national average in Germany for many years now.
