[Translate to English:] Weltkugel

The HTW Dresden adopted an internationalization strategy in 2012 and set itself goals in 3 fields of action. The internationalization process of the HTW Dresden is actively implemented with measures in these 3 fields of action.

  • International cooperation and networks: sharpening depth instead of broadening breadth 
  • Internationalization of teaching and research: regional anchoring and global networking 
  • Marketing and communication: bringing quality into the world 

The service departments and the faculties support and accompany the internationalization process.

Language Policy of HTW Dresden

German is the main language of teaching and communicating at the University of Applied Sciences Dresden. Knowledge of German is still indispensable for the acquisition of intercultural competence, for integration and everyday life in Germany and for the job market. That’s why we recommend our international students to benefit from the free German courses at the HTW.

English is the main vehicle language for international exchange and communication with partnerships. We want to improve materials and schedules in English and to increase the number of international study programmes in order to simplify the access to international study and research.

Other languages are relevant for the communication with international selected partners and for special study programmes.
