Hexagon Alliance of six German and Japanese Universities

Heidelberg University, Göttingen University and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) founded a German-Japanese university consortium with three of the leading universities in Japan – Kyoto University, Osaka University and Tohoku University in July 2010. With the assistance the consortium, which is unique in the history of German-Japanese cooperation, the member universities want to make the exchange of information easier, expand collaborations in research and teaching, and promote the exchange of students, doctoral candidates and academics.
Scientific coordinator of the alliance is Harald Fuess.

Partner Universities in East Asia

Over 20 universities in China, Japan and Korea have signed partnership agreements with Heidelberg University allowing eligible students and researchers to study and work at these institutions.

ERASMUS Partner Universities

(Heidelberg University's Centre of East Asian Studies)
Formal associations exist with 15 universities in Europe. Each year a number of eligible students may spend several months at these partner universities. We also have staff exchange agreements with many of the universities listed below, so scholars from these universities also teach intensive seminars at Heidelberg.
