HelloWorld@HSKL was a project for the internationalization of the Kaiserslautern University of Applied Sciences funded by the BMBF and DAAD within the framework of HAW.International, module A from October 2019 until the end of 2021.


Which goals did we have?

With HelloWorld@HSKL, the strategic anchoring of internationalization at the university was aimed at and thus an increased opening to the region and abroad – in line with the motto "From the World to the Palatinate – From the Palatinate to the World". On the one hand, international mobility was to be promoted, on the other hand, intercultural experiences were to be made possible, initially even without a stay abroad.
