International gateway to the Ruhr Area

UA Ruhr Liaison Offices

The University Alliance Ruhr (UA Ruhr) is an alliance between Ruhr Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund University, and the University of Duisburg-Essen, the three strongest universities in Germany’s thriving Ruhr Area. The UA Ruhr liaison offices carry out the message of the strength of the Ruhr Area as a research and study location into the world. Within a short period of time, these offices have initiated many exchange and scholarship programs, as well as research agreements, thus providing a valuable contribution to the international orientation of the Ruhr Area.
