The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is a member of the international university consortium UNIC (European University of Post-Industrial Cities). In addition to the RUB, UNIC includes universities from Bilbao, Cork, Istanbul, Liège, Oulu, Rotterdam and Zagreb. All cities are united by their post-industrial transformation and the challenges it poses.

The universities in the network offer virtual teaching and learning opportunities that can be used by all students and teachers at the partner universities. As a RUB student, you can easily take a course at another university from home.
