About Us

The Audi Konfuzius Institut Ingolstadt is a non-profit organisation for the teaching of Chinese language and culture. Its scope of activities is comparable to that of the German Goethe-Institutes, the British Council or the French Institut Français.
The partner universities of the Audi Konfuzius Institut Ingolstadt (AKII) are the German Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI) and the Chinese South China University of Technology (SCUT).

It offers a wide range of language courses and a variety of cultural events about China. In addition to the traditional tasks of promoting intercultural understanding, the Audi Konfuzius Institut Ingolstadt also promotes German-Chinese cooperation in the field of historical research, particularly where there is a connection to Ingolstadt.

German-Chinese trade and the associated international relations have grown very strongly in recent decades. Therefore, there is an increasing need for Chinese language courses and knowledge of Chinese culture. In addition, it is becoming increasingly evident that economic integration without cultural exchange is not sustainable in the long term.

The Institute sees itself as an intercultural bridge builder and a place of encounter. The various courses and events are open to all interested parties.
