Students from the University of Rwanda at Campus Koblenz

In the summer semester 2021, 10 students from the University of Rwanda spend a semester abroad at the University in Koblenz.


After all exchanges and in-person sessions had to be cancelled in 2020 due to the Corona pandemic, this year 10 students from Rwanda were again able to spend a semester abroad in Koblenz.

The students are funded by the EU programme Erasmus+ and attend English-language courses in the BioGeoSciences Master's programme at the Institute of Natural Sciences at Faculty 3. The successfully completed modules are validated at their home university.

Five of the ten students have enrolled with the aim of obtaining the new double degree from the University of Koblenz-Landau and the University of Rwanda. After successful completion of their studies, the students will receive a degree in BioGeoSciences from the University of Koblenz-Landau as well as in Biodiversity Conservation and Natural Resources Management from the University of Rwanda. This is also possible for students of the University of Koblenz-Landau if they spend a semester at the partner university in Rwanda.

If the global Corona situation permits, the Rwanda-Center and Office for Africa-Cooperations, as well as the Institute of Natural Sciences, are looking forward to welcoming five more students from Madagascar. The students are already taking BioGeoSciences courses online. They are very much looking forward to attending the practical units and field works in Koblenz. These were also found to be particularly instructive and valuable by their fellow students in previous years.
