The international visiting academics programme of the Faculty of Humanities and Cultural Studies is intended for any of the faculty's own university teachers who wish to invite an international academic with a view to promoting cooperation in research.
The purpose of the programme is to make internationalisation accessible and a hands-on experience.
Its objectives are:
- to help develop and strengthen research cooperation with recognised international researchers;
- to give new impetus to research;
- to promote the academic achievement of early career researchers;
- to contribute to sustainable interdisciplinary and international networking.
You will find the general requirements and all the necessary information relating to applications and remuneration in the Guidelines.
Only professors of the Faculty of Humanities and Cultural Studies of the University of Passau are eligible to apply.
For enquiries please contact the Dean's Office of the Faculty of Humanities and Cultural Studies.
The hosting chair or professorship has primary responsibility for assisting the academic during his or her visit. The Welcome Centre of the University of Passau offers comprehensive support to both the chairs and professors when it comes to finding accommodation and organising a ZIM account, Stu.IP access and a CampusCard.
