The ABROAD Magazine is a publication providing insights into the various international opportunities available to students during their studies at KISD as well as their experiences abroad. It can be viewed here.

Student participation and co-design of their own study environment is anchored in our study program at KISD. Students are systematically involved in the organization, self-administration and communication of KISD within the framework of various working groups (AGs). This concept of “co-responsibility” creates a high level of commitment among students and strengthens their identification with KISD, which is expressed in numerous activities beyond modules and compulsory events.

From 2021 on, these activities within the international working group (International AG) involve the independent conception, design and realization of the ABROAD Magazine, a publication telling international stories of KISD and providing insights into the various international opportunities available during their studies at KISD. These opportunities are presented in short interviews as well as in specific project descriptions and images.

With 82 active partner universities all around the world, KISD has an excellently developed international network. About half of our BA students spend a semester abroad during their studies; alternatively, students can choose short-term international projects abroad or “at home”. International Exchange Projects which are realized through the exchange of student groups, co-teaching by lecturers from both universities and joint blended learning phases stand for particularly intensive cooperation.
