International Partners

Global academic cooperation is a key element of the strategic development plan of Leuphana University Lüneburg. In addition to cooperation projects with partner institutions in research and education, mobility programmes for students at all levels of study as well as dual degree programmes are of particular importance in order to provide as many students as possible with an international academic experience and to promote diversity on Leuphana's Campus.

Leuphana University has concluded agreements on academic cooperation with more than 150 universities abroad.

Mobility partners can be found in the corresponding database.

International degree programmes that are offered in cooperation with partner institutions as either a dual degree programme or with a compulsory or optional semester abroad can also be found here at a glance.

Cooperation with other valued partners is more subject-specific and relations are maintained accordingly at a school, faculty or institute.

Strategic Partners

In addition to the mobility based partnerships, Leuphana University maintains close relationships to strategic partners. The collaboration with these strategic partners focuses on joint research projects involving all Leuphana's academic initiatives and the development of joint curricula and degree programmes.

The university currently maintains strategic partnerships with three international institutions. These partnerships are of outstanding importance for its further development of internationalization in research, studies and teaching.

  • The University of Glasgow is linked to Leuphana through the European Centre for Advanced Studies (ECAS) research center and several double degree programs at the bachelor's and master's level.
  • The City University of Hong Kong and Leuphana jointly offer the double bachelor degree program Digital Media.
  • Leuphana has a long-standing strategic partnership with Arizona State University, which has been reflected in research in the joint research center Center for Global Sustainability and Cultural Transformation and in teaching in the former double master's degree program Global Sustainability Science.
