Internationalisation in research and teaching at the Brandenburg Medical School is essential in view of increasing globalisation, demographic developments and worldwide competition. International networking and diversity are prerequisites for our university as an attractive location for employees and students. Our internationalisation efforts aim to provide competitive formats in research and teaching and, in return, to receive stimulating effects from international connections.
In our understanding, internationality is measured not by the number but the quality of cooperation agreements. Apart from the customary mobility programmes Erasmus+ and PROMOS, we are currently expanding a total of five bilateral strategic partnerships with institutions on various continents. The objective of these projects of intensive collaboration is the joint design of specific modules and curricula as well as more comprehensive forms of exchange in research and student education.
To perform this task, the university depends on the proactive involvement of all students, teachers and researchers. Internationalisation is perceived as a process with implications for all aspects of the university, from its mission statement to curricular details. In this context the International Office is the first contact point for mobility matters. This is where strategies and measures of internationalisation at the MHB are designed and coordinated with all relevant departments and divisions.

Staff mobility – Research and teaching abroad
The opportunity to spend time abroad with a support programme is open to MHB staff as well. Basically, there are two options: you can either instruct at a foreign university, or you use your educational leave or a business trip to complete a period of further training abroad.
Important to note: The MHB cannot contact another university on your behalf to arrange your teaching activities or further education. But we shall be pleased to assist you in preparing and organising your stay abroad.
Please contact the International Office no later than one month prior to your planned stay abroad.
Teaching assignment abroad
Please present an invitation from the foreign university where you plan to teach. In addition, please submit a confirmation from your home institution that your teaching assignment is approved for the period in question.
Further training abroad
Please present a confirmation for your business trip or educational leave. In addition, please submit confirmation of your registration for the further training you plan to attend.
Funding for your stay abroad by Erasmus+ is possible under specific conditions. Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
