The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) offers in cooperation with several other German and international institutions a training course for university staff dealing with international matters.

Leibniz Universität Hannover, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) are jointly organising the DIES Training Course “MANAGEMENT OF INTERNATIONALISATION” in cooperation with Universidad de Guanajuato – UG (Guanajuato, México), Manipal Academy of Higher Education – MAHE (Manipal, India), and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology – JKUAT (Nairobi, Kenya).

Since 2001, the Training Course is part of the programme Dialogue on Innovative Higher Education Strategies (DIES), which has been jointly coordinated by the DAAD and the HRK (German Rectors’ Conference) with financial support from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation (BMZ).
The key objective of the training course is to qualify university staff (either International Office staff or higher education managers responsible for coordinating international activities) from selected countries of Africa, Latin America, and Asia, to manage processes and tasks of internationalisation in the area of higher education.

The programme will enable the participants to build up improved and more effective structures of internationalisation at their home universities. The programme neither aims at universities with an already very developed stage of internationalisation, nor has as a main purpose to provide knowledge for proposal writing for third party funding.

How can I apply?

  • You are university staff (International Office staff or higher education managers responsible for coordinating international activities) from selected countries of Africa, Latin America, and Asia?
  • You manage processes and tasks of internationalisation in the area of higher education?
