For Scholars

The Bayreuth International Alumni Centre (BIAC) is building a worldwide network of former and current international scholars of the University of Bayreuth. Having won the competition “Research Alumni of German Universities”, the University of Bayreuth has established BIAC as a central point of contact for its international research alumni from all academic departments. BIAC also organizes events for alumni and offers comprehensive services as well as opportunities to become actively involved in building the network.


The network is meant for:

  • Scholars who have studied or carried out research at the University of Bayreuth and now hold a research position in a country other than Germany
  • International guest scholars who are conducting research at the University of Bayreuth and wish to maintain their connection to the university after their stay


Scholars can find further information in the menu on the left and register for free via an online form.
