Studying at Kiel University of Applied Sciences

Why study at Kiel UAS?

Lively, electrifying, constructive, cross-medial, committed and effective - this is the Kiel University of Applied Sciences Kiel, the largest and most diverse UAS in Schleswig-Holstein. 

The studies are practically oriented and, in close cooperation with the regional economy, tailored to the requirements of the labour market. Students gain insights into practical work at an early stage in projects, practical semesters and theses.

Innovative Projects

Numerous project groups provide the opportunity to gain practical experience. The offers range from campus radio and TV to the largest job fair in the north organised by students for students, the company contact day, the FH Formula Student Team Raceyard, the Förderacer water bike team, and the Baltic Thunder racing team with its headwind vehicle.

 

Interdisciplinary Work

Collaboration between people from different disciplines is becoming increasingly important in order to achieve targets in the world of work. Our students can practice this and gain relevant experience every semester during the Interdisciplinary Weeks (IDW). In lectures, workshops, excursions, projects and courses, team and communication skills are sharpened, interdisciplinary thinking, and individual creativity and flexibility are encouraged.

 

International Exchange

International experience is required. It shows that you have not only worked on your language skills, but have also demonstrated independence and organisational skills. The Kiel University of Applied Sciences cooperates with around 100 universities worldwide, which enable a semester abroad, summer and winter schools or even a double degree. In preparation for this, the Centre for Languages and Intercultural Competence offers modules at different levels in twelve different languages.

What is available on Campus?

On the FH Kiel campus in Dietrichsdorf, there are a number of ways to pass the time between events in a meaningful way and in good company. On the one hand there is the Bunker-D cultural centre, where students can get coffee, soft drinks and snacks, visit the current exhibition in the gallery belonging to the bunker or visit the cinema. On the other hand, there is the American Diner, where you can enjoy small dishes and drinks in an American atmosphere. Furthermore, the Max Planck Bistro has recently opened, which offers students pizza and various dishes at fair prices in a relaxed atmosphere. The Schwentine Mensa is also special, which is not only directly at the water but a former boat hall with a particularly maritime flair.

The campus at Osterrönfeld, almost 40 km west of Kiel, is right outside the gates of the district town of Rendsburg, which offers a wide range of amenities and leisure activities.
