Internationality

The Hochschule Geisenheim University offers a wide range of international teaching and research opportunities.

In total, more than 100 cooperation’s with universities and research institutions from around 40 countries exist worldwide.

For doctoral candidates, a binational doctoral procedure, the Cotutelle procedure, offers an attractive opportunity to internationalize their doctorate.

What is a cotutelle?
Cotutelle is an agreement for the creation of a joint organization and joint supervision of a doctorate between a German university and a foreign university in order to obtain a double degree.
Advantages
• Getting to know another scientific system and another culture
• Improvement of language skills
• Increased independence
• Intercultural experience in life and work situations
• Contacts in an international research community

The award of a double degree (recognized by both countries) improves employability outside the academic sector and facilitates a career in higher education in both countries.
