Local. Regional. International.
Dialogue is the lifeblood of research and instruction. Everyone profits from exchange on the national and international level.
The University of Freiburg possesses a comprehensive network of partnerships at the local, regional, and international level. Within the context of three international networks, the university and its faculties maintain partnerships with universities in over 30 countries – from Trinidad and Tobago to the USA. Thanks to the European Union’s Erasmus Programme, the University of Freiburg also enjoys close relations with all European countries. Almost twenty percent of the students in Freiburg hail from abroad.
European Confederation of Universities on the Upper Rhine (EUCOR)
At the regional level, the European Confederation of Universities on the Upper Rhine (EUCOR) plays a particularly important role. This alliance enables 150,000 students at the universities of Freiburg, Karlsruhe, Strasbourg, Mulhouse/Colmar, and Basel to complement their degree programs, gain international experience, and improve their language skills by taking courses at the other member universities.
Networks with other higher education institutions and research institutes in Freiburg itself also contribute to the attractiveness of the city and reinforce its status as an internationally competitive center for science and research.
