Dear students, dear researchers, dear staff,

The current COVID-19 pandemic raises many questions. The University of Göttingen has set up information pages that are updated regularly:

Information website for staff regarding the Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

Information website for students regarding the Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

Focus on equal opportunities and protection against discrimination

Information website Federal Ministry of the Interior in various languages

From March 17, all University offices including the International Office are indefinitely closed. You are welcome to contact us by e-mail. We will be able to respond as usual. Our staff work from home with limited access to university resources. Therefore processing might be delayed.

Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards,
The International Office


The University of Göttingen


The University of Göttingen is highly reputed throughout the world of academia and research. The University and eight internationally renowned non-university research institutions located in Göttingen make up the Göttingen Campus. The partnerships and networks of the University, its active agreements with institutions of higher education in ninety countries, a raft of scholarship/fellowship opportunities for international students and researchers, and more than fifty English-language Master and Ph.D. programmes – these offer some indication of the University’s strongly international stance.

The University of Göttingen would not be the same without the numerous international partnerships and exchange opportunities, international students, and academics on campus from more than 130 countries.

The International Office


The International Office of the University seeks to increase further the proportion of students and researchers from abroad, as well as to extend the breadth and depth of our international networks.
This is reflected in the Internationalisation strategy of the University.

We coordinate the international relations of the University and provide counseling and services for international students, academics and non-academic staff, as well as for those from Göttingen who are planning their study, research or staff exchange abroad.

Apart from that we are working closely with our liaison offices in China and India, with our growing alumni network around the world, and with the international community of students and researchers currently hosted in Göttingen.
