The TUHH is cooperating with a large number of universities worldwide in many different ways. Some cooperations  focus on research project or strategic development. With some partners we hold agreements for student exchange. With some universities we cooperate in several different areas and hold exchange agreements at the same time.

Depending on scope, organisational foundation, as well as the type, cooperations can exist on several different structural levels. Some cooperation are closed within preexisting programmes like Erasmus+ (EU exchange programme) or ISAP (DAAD exchange programme).
