The German Sport University Cologne (GSUC), or Deutsche Sporthochschule Köln as it is known locally, is Germany’s only sport university, and Europe’s largest centre for teaching and research in physical education and sport science. A recent visit to Griffith University on 24 February 2015 saw interest generated from both sides for the fostering of mutual exchange. With initial discussions between the two institutions extending back to 2005, Griffith University has seen a steady flow of inbound students from GSUC, through both Exchange and Study Abroad options. During this recent visit, GSUC gave a successful presentation to interested Griffith University students. Specifically, Griffith students from the key discipline areas of Physiotherapy and Exercise Science, Sport Science, Sport Management, and Health & Prevention, are interested in exchange opportunities with GSUC in order to enrich and diversity their degree, and their life experience more broadly. Griffith University has approximately 200 exchange partners around the world to support student mobility opportunities, including 99 within Europe. Most mobility programs allow students to earn credit towards their degree, whilst enabling them to immerse themselves in a different culture and make lasting personal and professional connections.
