Internationalization as an overarching, strategic cross-sectional task of higher education institutions ensures and enhances quality in studying and teaching. Funded by the Federal Ministery of education and Research, the two-year project FL²@Int'lFlex aims to develop a comprehensive internationalization strategy in combination with the design and implementation of measures to strengthen the areas of study, teaching and administration internationally.

The project picks up experiences with research-based and interdisciplinary teaching at the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences and uses them for systematic internationalization "at home & on tour". The planned measures serve the constructive understanding (on-site, abroad), the strategic networking (with partners) and the sustainable anchoring (cooperations, curricula).

Three areas with numerous face-to-face and online activities characterize the project structure:

  • Internationalization@home: expansion of the welcome culture, language courses, intercultural and international continuing education offerings, development of mentoring formats
  • Me, Myself & I: Strategy development - webinars and workshops on the strategic development and expansion of the university's internationalization
  • InternationalizationOnTour: Networking and building partnerships abroad

Expanding on these areas are central, overarching activities: Interdisciplinary and International Courses and Summer Schools.
