Since 2007 there is an exchange program with the University of Guadalajara (Internationale Studien- und Ausbildungspartnerschaft, ISAP) which is financed by the German Academic Exchange Service, DAAD. The exchange program promotes the mobility of students and teachers and consists of three scholarships for academic stays each semester.
From the winter semester 2018/19, students of the MA InterAmerican / InterAmerican Studies are eligible, in addition to the Master's degree at Bielefeld University, for the Double Degree option organized in cooperation with the MA in Literaturas Interamericanas at the Universidad de Guadalajara, Mexico.
The University of Bielefeld maintains active academic and administrative operations, conforming to the health requirements of the competent authorities. Communications related to the current situation can be found here.
