Internationally oriented study courses

Bielefeld University offers internationally oriented degree programmes: study programmes with double degree options; courses preparing for jobs in an international environment; English-language master programmes as well as master programmes with International Tracks.

Study programmes are international cooperation programmes studied within a degree programme that allow the achievement of double degrees or joint-degrees: students complete part of their degree at Bielefeld University and part at one or various partner universities.

The degree programmes "Deutsch als Fremd- und Zweitsprache [German as a second language]" and "Deutsch als Fremdsprache und Germanistik [German as a Foreign Language and German Studies]" prepare for jobs in an international environment.

An International Track is the English-language branch of a German-language degree programme. In International Tracks, the entire degree programme can be studied in English and does not require the knowledge of the German language.

English-language master programmes can only be studied in English. These degree programmes are not available in German.
