Service learning projects


Service-learning is learning through engagement. Together with regional and international NGOs, you can test how academic knowledge can be applied to social entrepreneurial thinking and how this can change and improve our actions.

To support this project, Trier University of Applied Sciences will become a member of the university network ­Bildung durch Verantwortung e.V. (Education through Responsibility), an association of 45 ­universities, in order ­to strengthen the ­area of "Third ­Mission" and Service-Learning in the ­long term.

More details on our service-learning projects will follow shortly.

International learning sponsorship with schools


The world grows together when our international students bring a piece of their life story into the classrooms of our regional schools. As an international learning mentor, you can not only impart knowledge, but also learn from each other, promote intercultural exchange, and advocate for togetherness. At the same time, valuable contacts are made with important institutional actors.

More details about our International Learning Sponsorship program will follow shortly.
