Commission for International Affairs


The commission advises the Senate on fundamental international matters and those that go beyond a faculty. It also advises on measures with regard to the internationalisation strategy of the University of Erfurt. It examines cooperation agreements in this regard that are concluded on behalf of the University of Erfurt. In consultation with the International Office, the Senate Commission coordinates and is responsible for the selection procedure for awarding exchange places and scholarships at university-wide level. The Senate Commission for International Affairs can invite internal or external experts to its meetings in an advisory capacity for specific matters.
