Not sure if Aschaffenburg UAS is the right choice for you? Here are eight reasons that make us stand out from the pack.

1 Top-ranked programmes

Our degree programmes are regularly placed at the top of the German Centre for Higher Education (CHE, Centrum für Hochschulentwicklung) university rankings.

2 Two faculties lead to meaningful interdisciplinary collaboration

Due to our focused yet interconnected two-faculty organisational structure, students from both faculties have easy access to opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration. Business and law students have a chance to gain expertise in technology issues, while engineers can brush up on their management and accounting skills. This broad knowledge proves invaluable when entering the labour market.

3 Many modules offered in English

Although all of our full degree programmes require knowledge of German, many individual modules are taught in English. For degree students, this means the opportunity to gain a solid command of both languages, including industry terminology. For visiting exchange students, this makes it easy to study for a semester or academic year entirely in English.

4 Walkable campus with a welcoming atmosphere

Our compact campus is easily walkable, and our small size creates a strong community feeling. On a typical day on campus, you might bump into friends on your way to class, eat lunch with a professor in the dining hall, carry out research with classmates in a high-tech laboratory, and stop by the Computer Centre to email with friends and family back home – all within a five- or ten-minute walk.

5 Excellence in teaching and personal support

World-class teaching is one of our most important goals, and our teachers have extensive resources to ensure that you maximise your learning. Small class sizes mean that your professors and lecturers are available to you for extra guidance or support, both during and outside of seminars. Additionally, we offer extensive academic and general guidance services if you need support in any aspect of your life as a student.

Extensive public transportation gives easy access to the rest of the region, giving students the best of both worlds.
