International Weeks at the faculty Health and Social Work
Every May and November numerous international guests are welcomed at the International Weeks at Frankfurt UAS. They are an important element of the "Internationalization at Home" project, which enables students to acquire international competences without staying abroad. For those who want to go abroad the International Week offers the opportunity to get to know lecturers from partner universities as well as practitioners from social institutions and to make contacts for a semester or an internship abroad.
In May the Faculty of Economics and Law also regularly organizes International Weeks. With the International Weeks, the university helps fostering existing university partnerships and offers the opportunity to establish new contacts in teaching and research and to promote student exchange. Currently, Frankfurt UAS maintains partnerships with more than 200 partner universities in European and non-European countries.
The "International Day" of the International Office of Frankfurt UAS takes place at the same time as the International Weeks. It provides information on exchange programs abroad. There are also modules within the Interdisziplinarian general studies ("Studium Generale") program that are designed to meet the internationalization strategy.
Information on previous International Weeks can be found here.
Information on international activities can also be found in our International Newsletter (PDF).
The 22nd International Week takes place from November 11 to 15, 2019. We invite lecturers from all our partner universitites to share with us interesting
perspectives on current discourses in social work and social policies.
Participants can expect a wide range of opportunities to exchange, promote, network, and discuss with students, other lecturers, researchers and practitioners.
