Offenburg Uni­ver­sity of Applied Sciences main­tains ac­tive exchange programs with more than 50 part­ner uni­ver­si­ties around the world. It also cooperates closely with the many in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­tive com­pa­nies in the local Ortenau area, both ben­e­fiting from and con­tributing to the in­ter­na­tion­al­iza­tion of the region. 

Of­fen­burg Uni­ver­sity was one of the first in­sti­tu­tions of higher ed­u­ca­tion in Ger­many, in 1998, to introduce internationally oriented, English-language Master's degree programs. Facilitated by the prox­im­ity with the French bor­der, double-degree programs in cooperation with prestigious French universities are also offered.

Sup­port of our in­ter­na­tional stu­dents - who currently com­prise about twelve per­cent of the total stu­dent population - ex­tends well be­yond aca­d­e­mics and the class­room. They may re­ceive help find­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion, par­tic­i­pate in cul­tural activities and lan­guage courses, and re­ceive ad­vice on their stud­ies and every­day is­sues throughout their stay. After leaving the University, the international Alumni Net­work makes it easy to stay connected and cultivate new contacts.
