The International Office

This is the right place for information and service regarding your studies or research stay at Leibniz Universität Hannover as well as information about opportunities to study or research abroad.

The International Office is responsible for Leibniz Universität’s exchange programs and can give you advice on scholarships and other forms of support. We are also in charge of developing internationalization at Leibniz-Universität and expanding cooperation between post-secondary institutions. Therefore we depend on the national code of conduct on foreign students.
