Kiel University of Applied Sciences is the largest institution of its kind in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany's most northern Federal State. It is located with its central faculties in the Baltic Sea city of Kiel, the state capital. Looking back on the history of its individual subject fields, the University of Applied Sciences can build on 125 years of tradition. Kiel has about 240,000 inhabitants.


The city, completely destroyed in World War II, today is dominated by modern businesses and office buildings. Its economic activity is mainly characterised by commerce, tourism, ship building and public service.


During the summer months, Kiel especially profits from tourism at the Baltic and North Sea. The "Kieler Woche", taking place in June, attracts thousands of visitors each year.
