International

The “Creating Knowledge Networks” principle underpins RUB’s internationalisation strategy. The university has positioned itself as a world-class research institution within the international scientific community.

RUB provides the conditions for scholars to establish research collaborations with top-level partners on an international level and to jointly pursue current research questions.

RUB enables students and early career researchers to take part in international exchange – at different stages of their university career and from the very beginning.

International networking

In order to ensure top-level research, Bochum-based scholars study current research questions in close collaboration with colleagues all over the world. RUB enters strategic partnerships with selected international universities and promotes international networking among individuals as well as faculties.

Thanks to research-oriented teaching, students benefit from the focus on international world-class research the moment they take up their degree course. The transfer of knowledge acquired through research activities into industrial applications is likewise conducted on an international level.

All this is facilitated by an administration that supports international networking and the promotion of international talents.

A powerful research hub is where RUB’s comprehensive networks are born. In the process, the university breaks down disciplinary borders and lays the foundation for cross-disciplinary and cross-generational collaboration.

Internationalisation strategy

In 2010, RUB introduced its internationalisation strategy and has been continuously developing it ever since. The strategy focuses on world-class research by the faculties, central research institutions, research departments and clusters, supported by the central administration department. RUB contributes actively to the international discourse on research, education, transfer and global social responsibility.
