Hosting agreement

A hosting agreement is concluded between Ruhr University Bochum as a recognised research institution and an international researcher. It serves as the basis for applying for and issuing an entry visa and a residence permit for the purpose of research (according to §18d AufenthG).

In the case of research stays funded by scholarships, the hosting agreement is signed by the International Office. In the case of employment contracts, the Human Resources Department (Department 3) is responsible.

You can find the hosting agreement here.
