Code of Conduct

The Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences has agreed to accept the "National Code of Conduct on Foreign Students at German Universities", aimed at securing and continuously enhancing the quality of support provided to international students.

To strengthen internationalisation at German universities, the German Rectors' Conference passed a Code of Conduct in 2009. The guiding principle is, wherever possible, to grant international students the same rights as German or EU students enjoy and, over and above that, to offer them the services and assistance that they particularly need as international students.

The Code of Conduct is a voluntary commitment of the participating universities and contains fundamental standards for the areas of information, marketing, admission as well as academic, language and social support.

International students coming to Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences can rely upon compliance with the standards. With this voluntary commitment, the University documents its dedication to provide appropriate support, which is an essential condition for the sustainable success of international students and researchers.

In the event of failure to comply with the rules of the Code of Conduct, please contact the ombudsman for international students:
