Indo-German Center For Higher Education



20th Anniversary of DHIK

The German University Consortium for International Cooperations (DHIK) has just turned 20 years old. It offers student exchange and double degree programs with China, Mexico and India. Over the years, more than 4,500 students gained international experience and started exceptional careers. This was celebrated at the partner university Hochschule Fulda:

DHIK and IGCHE merge

Germany's largest consortium of Universities of Applied Sciences for international cooperations DHIK and IGCHE decided to merge. IGCHE will become the Indian pillar of the DHIK consortium, just like CDHAW for China and mdhk for Mexico.

For Indian students, this means more university options in Germany, as the DHIK currently comprises 37 universities. Student exchanges, guest lectures and research collaborations can be expanded and intensified.

The merger was agreed at the IGCHE consortium meeting in May and at the DHIK consortium meeting on June 10th.

Cooperation between DHIK and IGCHE confirmed in both consortium meetings

Gratifying news in the first quarter of 2021: DHIK and IGCHE decide to cooperate

A new cooperation has been established with the international consortium DHIK, which is primarily concerned with double degrees in engineering with strong partners in China and Mexico, and the Indo-German network IGCHE, which brings Indian students to Germany for double degrees. Both consortia have voted in favour of this cooperation by a majority in the respective consortium meeting.

A brief portrait of the DHIK:

The double degree program with Tongji University in Shanghai started with its foundation in 2004. Ten years later, the consortium expanded its range of countries to include Mexico and agreed on a double degree program with the university Tecnológico de Monterrey. The focus of the exchange program is on engineering degree programs. The consortium now counts 34 universities from Germany and Switzerland among its members and has already paved the way for more than 2,000 students to earn a double degree.

A brief portrait of the IGCHE:

The Indo-German Center for Higher Education started in 2010 as a cooperation between four German universities and two Indian partners. Eight German and three Indian partners are now involved, jointly offering four engineering degree programs for Indian students and quality-assured semesters abroad for German students. With German Language Centers on site in India, the IGCHE ensures a high level of language proficiency for more than 250 active students.

The chairmen of both consortia, Prof. Fröhling and Prof. Leonhard, are looking forward to a successful and forward-looking cooperation.
