Audit "Internationalisation of Universities"

The Audit "Internationalisation of Universities," carried out by the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK), supports German universities with services aimed at the strategic development and sustainable implementation of internationalisation measures.

The audit is primarily focused on the analysis of a university’s current state of internationality and the (further) development of an institutional internationalisation strategy.

Beginning in August 2010, the Audit “Internationalisation of Universities” has audited 12 universities each year. The University of Bamberg was included in 2014.

Family-friendly University

We are one of the few German universities committed to tackling the issues facing parents and families in academia. For this reason, we submitted our institution to the Beruf & Familie GmbH (an initiative of the non-profit Hertie Foundation) for review.

We take great pride in the group’s findings: as one of only nine universities, the Hertie Foundation's review council awarded the University of Bamberg the "Family-friendly University" certificate in June of 2006. We were recertified in June of 2009, and again in March of 2012.

Partner University of High-performance Sports

On 26 January 2005, the German University Sports Federation (adh) recognised the University of Bamberg as an official "partner university of high-performance sports."

The aim of this cooperative programme is to foster an environment in which university studies and elite athletics (A, B and C national team squads) are compatible. The cooperation agreement made between university governance, the student services organisation and national elite sports federations establishes various supportive measures for elite student-athletes.
