International Projects

Our international projects aim at accompanying international prospective and current students through their whole academic pathway and their preparation for their labour market entry. Thus, we see ourselves in a promising position to support international  students in their respective search efforts in the best way possible before, at the beginning and during their studies.

Below you will find an overview of all projects in the central areas and faculties of Heilbronn University that are funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) with funds from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
