Profile & Strategy

Internationalization is a cross-sectional task

Recognizing its status as a transnational hub, and a diverse and outward looking campus where ideas and experiences are exchanged, the University of Regensburg considers internationalization an essential part of its future in a globalized world. With such diversity in its membership, we understand internationalization at UR to be a cross-sectional task that should be considered in strategic decisions in all areas of the university including research, teaching, third mission and infrastructure.

Principles and quality standards

Embedded in the region and with its historically strong ties to universities in Eastern and Western Europe as well as North America, the University of Regensburg strives to ensure conditions are optimal for its members' academic and cultural exchange. The University of Regensburg emphasizes the principles of academic freedom and anti-discrimination in its internationalization activities, anchoring them in policies and agreements. These commit it to binding quality standards for advising and supporting international students
