The a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School emphasizes research, teaching and networking on an international level. This becomes apparent in the many transcultural and regionally diverse research projects pursued at the school and supported in the framework of a.r.t.e.s. international – for all, a part of the DAAD programme IPID4all, in which all doctoral candidates of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities can receive funding. Special offers for international doctoral candidates such as a mentoring programme and language courses further support the graduate school’s international network. Bilateral research and international doctoral models – for example co-tutelage agreements and the supplementary certificate ‘Doctor Europaeus’ – also contribute to the internationalization of academic research.

a.r.t.e.s. also contributes to honing the international profile of the entire Faculty of Arts and Humanities by regularly hosting Summer Schools and Graduate Seminars. It cooperates closely with partner institutions and continually expands its international network. Its close connections to KölnAlumniWELTWEIT, which maintains exchange schemes with universities and research institutes around the world, facilitates contacts between researchers at the UoC and international scholars.

Furthermore, doctoral students of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities are also able to participate in the programme Erasmus+ which is established at the Center for International Relations. The programme encourages the linguistic and cultural exchange between European universities and promotes studying abroad.
