The motto "Creating Knowledge Networks" also determines the internationalisation strategy of the RUB. It relies on internationally networked and forward-looking top-level research of social relevance as the anchor and starting point of its internationalisation activities.

In order to advance research, teaching and transfer/societal engagement through international networking and to facilitate international exchange, RUB enters into central university-wide partnerships and scientific cooperation agreements.

The university is an active member of various international networks and is represented by offices abroad in two world regions as part of the University Alliance Ruhr.

The RUB enables students and young academics to gain multiple experiences abroad of various kinds at an early stage and is involved in a wide range of international projects in teaching. In addition, internationally oriented degree programmes and support programmes also provide valuable international experience and skills.

The RUB sees itself as a place of top-level research in the international scientific community. It therefore creates optimal conditions for excellent scientists from all over the world to work on current research questions together with first-class partners.

Das Audimax der RUB

Assuming social responsibility locally and worldwide has always been an essential part of Ruhr-Universität Bochum´s central university mission and is therefore also reflected in its internationalisation activities, its international partnerships and networks.
