Welcome to the University of Oldenburg!

  • CV
  • Preferred period and duration of the planned teaching visit
  • Selection of subject areas
  • Preferred language of instruction

The International Office will forward the information to the departmental coordinators. After mutual agreement, the mobility agreement is signed at departmental level.
