University of Bayreuth opens Gateway Office in Melbourne


Ever since it opened its doors in 1975, the University of Bayreuth has been resolutely pursuing strategic international cooperation, including collaboration with Australian universities. Bayreuth researchers are currently working together with eight higher education institutions in Australia in a number of different disciplines. Since four of the eight Australian partners are located in Melbourne, the city was the logical choice for opening a Gateway Office.

The Gateway Office at the University of Melbourne opened its doors in the offices of the Australian-German Energy Transition Hub at the University of Melbourne on 26 June 2018. It will enable the University of Bayreuth to provide better support for researchers and students during their time Down Under and will not only assist with issues relating to studies, but also, for example, with visa-related matters or in searching for internships or apartments.
This also applies vice versa: The establishment of the Gateway Office may even bring th University of Bayreuth to the attention of Australian students for the very first time and will also be a great help to anyone planning a visit or research stay at the Bayreuth University. Thereby it will also further increase the number of excellent international students and researchers on the campus.

Responsibilities of Bayreuth’s new Gateway Office

Following the launch of its first Gateway Office in Shanghai in April 2016, the new office in Melbourne is now the University of Bayreuth’s second Gateway Office. The responsibilities of the office in Melbourne are as follows:

  • point of contact and information to facilitate the exchange of students and instructors between Bayreuth and Australia
  • strengthening collaboration in research and teaching
  • establishing and maintaining contact with institutions in business and science
  • assisting in recruiting and selecting qualified Australian students and doctoral researchers to come to Bayreuth
  • establishing and maintaining contact with the University of Bayreuth’s regional networks in Oceania
  • alumni services
