International partnerships and projects, as well as the internationalisation of courses, research and teaching, play a key role at Folkwang University of the Arts. The person responsible for international partnerships and projects is Vice President for International Affairs and Events, Prof. Hanns-Dietrich Schmidt.
350 members of the teaching staff are responsible for a total of approx. 1600 students. More than 30% of the students are foreign, and come from countries and backgrounds from around the world. Their presence greatly influences the international ambiance of our study environment.
The International Office forms one interface point for international activities at Folkwang University of the Arts. It maintains the university’s international relations, and is the first contact point for any queries regarding student and teacher exchange programs, or the exchange of other staff within the scope of ERASMUS and worldwide.
