University Open Day

Every year in November, school leavers, teachers and parents have the opportunity to find out what it's like to study at Furtwangen University at the Furtwangen University Open Day on all three university campuses. You can sit in on lectures, take tours of the labs, and take part in practicals and experiments. We will also tell you about all of our degree programmes and give you information about application, admission, exchange semesters and financing.

University Open Day 2020: Wednesday 18 November

Due to the current circumstances, the next University Open Day will take place online. We are busy putting a wide-ranging and informative programme together for you. You'll get the chance to get to know our three university campuses in Furtwangen, Schwenningen and Tuttlingen and the degree programmes we offer.

Registration is not necessary.

Keep checking this page. The programme for the next Open Day will be continuously updated.
