Great reasons to study at the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt

The perfect study environment

To help you get started, we offer orientation events, mentoring by senior students and preparatory courses to refresh your existing knowledge, for example in mathematics or physics. Due to our small class sizes, our lecturers can provide students with excellent support. Our complex degree programs are supplemented by opportunities for you to acquire essential professional skills in areas such as research methods, public speaking or how to set up a business.

Guaranteed real-world relevance

We really live by our motto: "Where theory meets practice". Our courses focus on hands-on training achieved through research and cooperation projects with industry, local authorities and politics. Our students make extensive use of these diverse contacts in their excursions, projects and theses. All of our Bachelor's programs include a semester-long work placement.

Smaller class sizes

If you want to be more than just a number, you've come to the right place at the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt! With about 4500 students, we are a small university. You will quickly get to know your fellow students, who will accompany you through to graduation. Every winter semester, between 20 and 150 first-year students per course begin their studies with us, so on average around 50 students. This relatively manageable number enables students to learn in small groups and be closely supervised by their lecturers.

Top scores in university rankings

The University of Applied Sciences Erfurt scores top marks in the university rankings. Architecture and Civil Engineering, for example, are rated very highly at the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt. Proof that you can get a first-rate education here!

Study more effectively

The modular structure of the courses ensures that you can study effectively. Elective modules and various specializations allow students to individually tailor their degree to their own interests. We aim to make our students as employable as possible by providing them with targeted knowledge in their field, but also by helping them acquire media and social competencies. In addition, the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt offers specific academic counselling for all students who have not obtained more than 30 ECTS after their first two semesters. By doing so, we hope to determine whether the student has chosen the right course for them and, if necessary, help them find a better alternative.

Good job prospects

The University of Applied Sciences Erfurt strengthens the employability of its students by imparting in-depth technical and methodical knowledge as well as cultural, media and social competence. Careers days, careers counselling and business start-up seminars are all a matter of course. The close relationship between theory and practice throughout their studies helps our graduates to immediately make a smooth transition into the world of work.

Successful graduates

The strong practical relevance of our courses ensures that graduates can get off to a quick start in their careers. According to a survey, 85% of our Bachelor's graduates found a job after about three months. The university actively supports students starting out in their professional lives, e.g. through careers days, counselling or business start-up seminars.

Certified quality

One of the main priorities of the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt is the quality of its courses and teaching. Course, module and degree program evaluations are used to further develop our range of courses accordingly. As a certified "family-friendly university", the university actively supports students who are juggling the demands of family and studying; as a "health-friendly university", its goal is to optimize job and student satisfaction.
