The University of Stuttgart and the world

International Affairs

Numerous global study and research cooperations, large contingents of international students, renowned guest scientists – all testify to the University of Stuttgart’s international orientation.

Systematically networked

The University of Stuttgart maintains relationships with more than 320 foreign universities on all but one continent. The dialogue of cultures and disciplines is cultivated in partnerships of long standing. Moreover, research is pursued in joint project and students are groomed as international actors in dual-degree programs. With its comprehensive strategy of internationalization, the University is expanding this network and thus continues to solidify its global presence.

Consistently explored

Joint research projects with other universities around the globe amalgamate the strengths of diverse cultures and locales: in Italy, in China, or in India, to name just a few examples. In Stuttgart scientists from all continents also combine their efforts. We host guest researchers for years at a time or for a single semester and work with them on interdisciplinary teams.

Steadfastly supported

The University of Stuttgart supports its students on their way into and throughout their study abroad experiences from the first notion, through questions on financing, to advice on bureaucratic subjects and recognition of foreign academic credits. Students from abroad who come to Stuttgart are supported in equal measure, ranging from the application stage to visa assistance to expert advice and mentoring programs. Additionally, the University is expanding its English-language Master’s degree study programs.
