International Affairs

Department 5 International Affairs deals with the strategic further development and implementation of our university’s internationalization and offers all members of the university a range of service and consulting services to implement internationalization measures. Our tasks include developing strategic university cooperations, mobility of students, faculty and staff and assistance with starting studies and integration on the campus. We advise international students, visiting research scientists and those interested in a stay abroad and collaborate closely with the university departments and administration on jointly shaping internationalization at Hamburg University of Technology.

National Code of Conduct

The TUHH supports the National Code of Conduct for German Universities Regarding International Students.

This Code of Conduct aims to ensure that students from abroad receive the quality of support and advice needed when studying in Germany. The guiding principle is, wherever possible, to grant international students the same rights as are available to German or EU students. Any non-compliance with the National Code of Conduct could be reported to Nicole Frei, Manager of Internationalisation at TUHH.
