International Teaching

The University of Mannheim attaches great importance to international exchange in teaching and research. The University of Mannheim fosters collaboration with universities and cooperation partners around the world, both in physical and digital exchanges.

Digital exchange can also foster collaboration with universities without having to be active in the same place in the world. Through “Virtual Mobility” and “Virtual Exchange”, this digital exchange is secured by establishing an international network that enables virtual teaching at university level.

The internationalization of teaching is also taken into account with a wide range of courses. At the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, International Cultural Studies (ICS) offers an international, intercultural and interdisciplinary perspective on cultural studies. This creates links between students and subjects.


International Cultural Studies (ICS)

International Cultural Studies (ICS) take a look at key concepts in cultural studies as well as their application in historical and contemporary contexts. They focus on internationality, interculturality and interdisciplinarity.

Virtual Exchange

„Virtual Mobility“ and „Virtual Exchange“ refer to an area of teaching which is characterized by international networking and virtual teaching. This teaching concept is often referred to as “COIL” (Collaborative Online International Learning).
