University - The Particular

After completing their degree programmes, students already have plenty of professional experience and are familiar with operational processes. Theoretical and practical periods alternate every three months throughout the study programme. During practical periods, students work as apprentices in companies (in the health degree programme) or for "partners in practice" (for degree programmes in construction and engineering). hochschule 21 now has around 850 partners in practice committed to the idea of dual study. The combination of academic university education and practical experience creates highly sought experts out of graduates.

Study Programme - Main Focus

hochschule 21 focuses on the areas of health (degree programmes for Midwifery, Nursing, Physiotherapy), technology (Mechatronics) and engineering (Architecture, Civil Engineering, Construction and Real Estate Management). Work and research is conducted in an interdisciplinary manner. A high level of practical training prevails even during theoretical periods. Students are given the opportunity to acquire various additional qualifications (e.g. architectural draftsman, real estate agent).

Background - The Insight

A very active student body offers a broad range of opportunities: university cinema, social engagement, numerous sports facilities, participation in many sporting events, and much more besides.
