Digital Internationalisation of the Faculties

The project "Digital Internationalisation of the Faculties" (DIF) strengthens the expansion of digital courses in English across the university.

Digital Internationalisation strengthens virtual mobility by expanding digital courses offered in English with international partners.

Digital internationalisation plays a significant role in the internationalisation strategy of H-BRS. Digital tools allow cross-border distances to be overcome without leaving the campus (virtual mobility). In University Development Plan 3 (2021-2025), we have made a plan to develop and test digital formats and suitable methods in teaching, research, transfer and administration. Thus, we will enable more and more university members to cooperate across borders and develop international competences.

Less than 10% of the students at H-BRS take advantage of the outgoing offers of our university, whereas 90% of our students cannot go abroad, due to either financial or health related reasons or family commitments. Digital internationalisation offers students to gain international and intercultural skills while staying at home. In addition, participating in digital international formats can break down mobility barriers and arouse interest in international exchange programmes.

The Team Digital Internationalisation offers a comprehensive range of digital professional courses in English that allow our students to gain international experience, practice digital collaboration and earn ECTS.

The courses are generally open to all interested students from Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences and our partner universities. In the descriptions you will find further information about possible admission requirements, registration, assessment as well as the possible receipt of ECTS.

The project Digital International General Studies, short DISG, offers lectures in different disciplines as well as interdisciplinary programmes at Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg and our partner universities.

The following staff will advise you about the virtual mobility programmes offered by each department or the campus-wide DISG programmes.
