10 good reasons to study at the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt

Are you interested in the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt but still need some convincing? No problem, we've got a few ideas for you...

  • It's easier said than done to find your way around at the beginning. With the many electives and compulsory subjects, deadlines and countless places to go, it can quickly become complicated. We are here to help our students successfully navigate their way through the university jungle. A lot of help is available at the start, such as introductory events, tutors or refresher courses for students to review what they already know.

  • The University of Applied Sciences Erfurt scores top marks in the university rankings, with Architecture and Civil Engineering, for example, achieving the highest ratings. But we aren't perfect either, so if something doesn't go the way it should, don't hesitate to get in touch with us.

  • Where theory meets practice - that's our motto! The practical orientation of our degree programs is most noticeable in the work placements, including whole semesters of work-based experience, numerous field trips and applied projects. The network of contacts you develop along the way can be very useful when writing your final thesis.

  • The seminars, lectures and tutorials you will attend are very diversified. To help you focus on your individual interests, we offer electives and various specialist subjects, and encourage you to develop your media, social and academic research skills. You will also have the opportunity to gain insights into business start-ups and perfect your presentation techniques and communication skills..

  • We actively support everyone at the start of their careers. Opportunities such as counselling or business start-up seminars and the combination of a theoretical and practical education mean our students are best prepared for the job market. With us, you are in good hands if you want to enter the world of work as quickly and as well-organized as possible. Good to know for all those aspiring to do a PhD: it is also possible to do a doctorate here in cooperation with another university.

  • Everything in Erfurt is within easy reach on foot or by bike. This also applies to our three campuses, which are located in the immediate vicinity of the city centre. And if the weather isn't so good or you're feeling a bit sluggish, you can use your semester ticket to get around Erfurt and Thuringia by public transport.

  • At our university, we aim to create a a family-like atmosphere. Small class sizes and the excellent supervision of our professors foster sustainable learning as well as good social and teamworking skills.

  • Modern facilities such as the library, language centre, workshops and laboratories are the perfect learning environment. The new refectory and cafeteria are ideal for recharging your batteries between classes or taking a relaxing break - just like the foosball table in the student-run "Café Aqua".

  • Studying abroad for a semester is a unique opportunity to develop your professional, language and personal skills. With around 50 partner universities, we offer a wide range of destinations worldwide and can help you prepare so that everything runs smoothly. Various projects and lectures in Erfurt will help you to organize your next trip abroad or give you some ideas about where to go. Language courses ranging from Chinese to Norwegian to Spanish will improve your communication skills and prepare you well for your adventure abroad.
