Since the winter semester 2020/21, Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences has been offering online courses taught in English in the "Osnabrück Global Classroom", targeting both own students and students from international partner universities. The courses are either part of the regular curriculum at Osnabrück or are conducted in cooperation with lecturers from partner universities. The online guest students attend the modules free of charge from their home countries, take exams and receive a transcript of records. The Osnabrück Global Classroom not only offers the chance to work with partner universities and international fellow students even in times of travel and contact restrictions, but also enables intercultural learning for those students who, for a variety of reasons, cannot or do not want to spend a study semester abroad. An overview of the courses offered in the Osnabrück Global Classroom can be found here.
Information for interested teachers and students is available at the International Faculty Office of the respective faculty.
