RWTH Aachen University wants to offer all students the opportunity to acquire international and intercultural skills, which are becoming more and more important both when starting a career and in society as a whole.


Since not all students are able or interested in a stay abroad during their studies, we would like to introduce you to a number of offers to help you achieve Internationalisation@home. Of course, these offers should not be seen as a substitute for international mobility or as competition to it; rather, the areas complement each other. Therefore, we would also like to encourage students who are planning or have already completed a stay abroad to take a look at these offers.

  • BeBuddy

In the BeBuddy-Program, you can support one or more international students in starting their everyday studies in Aachen.

  • Workshops on intercultural communication

The workshops to increase intercultural communication are aimed at students who are preparing to study abroad, who are active in international student groups or who would like to improve their communication with foreign fellow students.

  • Language Courses

The Sprachenzentrum der RWTH Aachen offers students language courses in many different foreign languages.

  • Student Initiatives

Get involved in student initiatives with an international focus such as IAESTE or AIESEC

The Certificate International confirms your engagement in the field of internationalization. The International Certificate contains various mandatory components in the two variants "Mobility" and "Integration".
