The Institute for Internationalisation (ifi) represents a milestone in the process of internalisation pursued by Kempten University of Applied Sciences. The interdisciplinary and cross-faculty research projects and activities we pursue make us the central point of call and assistance for all university stakeholders interested in international themes.
Our graduating students face numerous fresh challenges in the globalised world. Networking with our international partners in research and teaching – for example in joint student projects or research projects – is therefore a key concern.
Matching the requirements of business and industry and collaborating closely in this respect also belong to our main priorities. Representatives of internationally focused companies support us in our international advisory board and facilitate rigorous interaction between university learning and business practice.
We offer international lecturers attending our university a workplace in the ifi office. Please contact us well in advance to reserve it for your guest’s visit. We will then provide a desk and laptop for them in the ifi office (A406). The request form is available in the university’s forms collection at <Hochschule intern – Wiki> Apply for a guest lecturer’s workstation. The member of university staff overseeing the visit should complete this form and send it to us. We have produced an Info pack for guest lecturers to familiarise them with our university. We can issue your guest with a key to the ifi office and, if required, a visitors’ CampusCard.
We can issue your guest with a key to the ifi office and, if required, a visitors’ CampusCard. Please contact us in advance at ifi(at)hs-kempten.de. After we have confirmed the dates, please take the completed form to the Centre for General Elective Studies and Languages (Mensa – M103), where you can collect the office key and CampusCard from Dr Märlein or Mr Walter. To ensure the process runs smoothly for everyone, please apply at least seven days in advance.
We perceive international networking as a huge opportunity. Our summer and winter schools offer international students a chance to get to know our university and the local region, engage with a current topic and make many new friends. This is a great springboard for spending a semester abroad with us further down the line. We offer our own students in Kempten to join in and work in these international, interdisciplinary groups and get to know not just other cultures but also a variety of different approaches. It’s a wonderful opportunity to gain an initial insight into international collaboration prior to perhaps also deciding to study abroad for a while.
