Code of Conduct

As a HRK member university Philipps-Universität Marburg has joined the National Code of Conduct for German Universities Regarding  International Students as a voluntary commitment to ensure that students from abroad receive the quality of support and advice required when studying at UMR.  As a signee, UMR will continually develop its services toward a comprehensive advising and counseling concept for the duration of studies.

According to the HRK the code “defines quality standards for foreigners studying at German universities and thereby establishes, for the first time, a set of common minimum standards in the fields of information and marketing, admissions, supervision, support and advice, plus follow-up services, on which international students can rely.

The guiding principle is, wherever possible, to grant international students the same rights as are available to German or EU students and, over and above this, to offer them the services and assistance that they particularly need as foreign guests.”

Please do not hesitate to contact our International Office staff to learn about support services for international students at UMR or simply visit our support services.
