Understand the politics of today's world
The Bachelor programme International Relations examines political dimensions of globalisation and European integration, internationalisation strategies of companies and non-governmental organizations. We analyse various phenomena which transcend boundaries in today’s world: commerce and climate change, values and political ideas, rights and regulations. IR-students organise events and simulations which connect the lecture hall with real-world experiences, such as KleMUN (Kleve Model United Nations) or KleMAU (Kleve Model African Union). These student-driven activities shape our campus life.
Application-oriented and international
Develop your professional skill set in our modern laboratory landscape, numerous projects and interactively designed courses. Test your career ambitions during the internship semester in a political organisation, a company, or in the non-profit sector. The high proportion of students from around the world and the opportunity of a semester abroad at a partner university will provide you with first-hand international experiences.

"Another advantage of this university is the personal contact between professors and students. While many universities work in a very anonymous way, in Rhine-Waal one can always find helpful and individualized support. The correct contact person is always available."
