Our international climate is enriched by our staffs international contacts and cooperations. Thus the Faculty of Design welcomes international guests for lectures, workshops, cooperations and talks.
In close cooperation with our international office we support our international students with various workshops and activities and open all our facilities and courses for them to be explored. We offer them all opportunities so they can arrange an exchange programm meeting their exact needs and expectations. We want our international guests to enjoy a positive experience in our faculty and to feel as welcome as our students are abroad with our partners.

In this week our professors and our students can chose to participate in intense activities in or out of campus. Excoursions are frequently organised in this course. Our partners are invited to participate by sending a guest-lectuerer (alone or accompanied by a group of students) or to receive one of our professors as a guest (alone or accompanied by a group of students).
