University Partnerships

Information for academic personnel on university partnerships, Faculty- and Institute-level partnerships, project partnerships, and agreements on student exchanges.

University partnerships (I) 

  • University partnerships
  • Faculty- and Institute-level partnerships
  • Project partnerships, and agreements on student exchanges
  • All three categories should generally be developed from the bottom up; i.e., the prerequisite for signing an agreement should be an actual interest expressed in one or several institutions of the University of Bonn.
  • In all categories, the level of commitment and validity with regard to the agreements may differ in its intensity.
  • A "Letter of Intent" is a relatively non-committal expression of an intent to work together as a preliminary step towards an agreement. The next or interim step is a "Memorandum of Understanding". Finally, a full-fledged partnership takes the form of an "Agreement."
