International profile of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum

In teaching and research, the Ruhr-Universität Bochum cooperates in many active partnerships with institutions from all over the world. All faculties and institutes participate in the continuous further development of international exchange with universities, research institutes and networks.

Creating Knowledge Networks
The university is an active member of various international networks and is represented by offices abroad in two world regions as part of the University Alliance Ruhr. The Ruhr-Universität Bochum operates in global networks. Research, study and teaching, promotion of young researchers, transfer, social commitment and professional exchange do not stop at our national borders, but are oriented towards international best practice. Cooperation in alliances at university level serves the further internationalisation of all areas of the university in many ways.
