Association to promote internationalisation

Förderverein zur Internationalisierung der Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg e.V. (Association to promote internationalisation at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg)

Who we are

We are a group of dedicated members, alumni and friends of Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU). It is our goal to promote the University’s internationalisation.

We develop and support various projects that benefit international students and guest researchers. Furthermore, we are committed to helping German students gather international experience.

Our work requires financial support. You can help by making a donation.

As the Erlangen tax authority has classified us as non-profit, donations are tax-deductible.
