Half-Year or One-Year Exchange to University of Kassel, Germany

Exchange Period: Fall Semester 2020


Information about University of Kassel

The University of Kassel is a young, modern and vibrant university, characterized by its openness to new ideas in every single area of its work. Receptivity, initiative, transdisciplinary thinking and unconventionality are traits they cherish and welcome in studies, research and teaching, but also in knowledge transfer and entrepreneurial ventures, to which the university provides special support. They aspire to develop, validate and implement ideas – even if they are not yet in the mainstream. The University of Kassel has an unconventional profile with fields of expertise in nature, technology, culture and society. Questions relating to the future of our planet and our existence such as globalisation, climate change, environmental protection as well as questions regarding the evolution of technical systems or demographic change are characteristic of their profile in both research and teaching.

With more than 23,000 students and approximately 1,800 scholars, among them more than 300 professors, the University of Kassel is one of Germany’s mid-sized universities. It plays a key role in the development of the northern Hessen region, but its profile also attracts many students and scholars from across Germany and abroad. They nurture creativity, critical analysis, ethical reflection and unconventional thinking. Extending the development of academic fields beyond their boundaries is another marker for many University of Kassel research centres searching for sustainable answers to our most important questions. This focus offers scholars and scientists exciting challenges and also paves the way for students into their lives and careers.
