As a cross-sectional task, internationalization and the people involved in it can be found in almost all areas and at almost all levels of our university. Nevertheless, at UR there are some people, offices and committees who take on very special tasks in this context.
A detailed description of the organizational structures and responsibilities in the field of internationalization can be found in UR‘s Internationalization Guidelines (Internationalization@UR), but several key contacts in the field of internationalization are briefly introduced below.
The Vice President for Internationalization and Diversity is responsible for planning and coordinating the internationalization measures at the University of Regensburg. In addition to representation and communication, the Vice President is responsible for developing and implementing the internationalization concept, for the structuring of international partnerships and for the overall strengthening of UR in its diversity as an international campus and transnational hub.
The Vice President is supported in the strategic development of the internationalization of the University of Regensburg by the Staff Unit Internationalization. The Staff Unit is involved in, among other things, coordinating the cooperation of UR’s Executive Board with the faculties and central institutions pertaining to developing their internationalization further.
The faculty representatives for international affairs coordinate internationalization activities at the faculty level and support the university's internationalization activities in an advisory capacity via the Committee of Faculty Representatives for International Affairs. They regularly report on faculty and university internationalization activities in the Faculty Board and in the Committee of Faculty Representatives for International Affairs.

The International Office is the central agent implementing, coordinating and monitoring the mobility of students and academics. It coordinates all overseas and ERASMUS+ activities and funding programs at UR, and initiates and finalizes partnership agreements. The IO organizes and coordinates all mobility-related processes and makes a vital contribution to their success with its support and advisory services.
IO’s Welcome Center is the central point of contact for international visiting researchers and PhD candidates giving them comprehensive support for a successful stay at UR.
At UR there are also a number of other institutions with activities focused on internationalization:
The Center for Language and Communication (ZSK) is one of the central institutions of the University of Regensburg and its courses contribute to the acquisition of key qualifications for studying and professional life. The center consists of the following teaching areas:
The Europaeum is the East-West Centre of the University of Regensburg. Founded in 2000 as a central institution at UR, it was given the task of stimulating and promoting interdisciplinary dialogue between Eastern and Western Europe in the areas of research and teaching.
BAYHOST is the Bavarian Academic Center for Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe located at UR. It promotes academic exchange between Bavaria and countries in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe including Russia. BAYHOST supports Bavarian universities through its specific competencies; by supporting their collaboration with academic organizations in the partner countries and by establishing new partnerships.
The Bavarian-Czech Academic Agency is affiliated with the Bavarian Academic Center for Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe (BAYHOST) as its own department and acts as the central point of contact for all aspects of bilateral cooperation between Bavaria and the Czech Republic in the field of higher education and science.
