Exchange opportunities at HdM

Information for Incoming Students and Lecturers

International students and lecturers are welcome

For us, being international doesn ́t only mean that our students are studying or working abroad. We are also interested in hosting students and lecturers from other countries. They give us new inputs and impulses. Our students come into contact with other cultures, and as hosts, can present their home region and offer an entry into German culture.
