Furtwangen University is not only the highest university in Germany geographically, in prestigious rankings students and businesses have also voted us one of the top educational institutions in Germany. Our 9 faculties offer a broad range of practical and future-oriented degree programmes across 3 campuses — Furtwangen, Schwenningen and Tuttlingen. The friendly and supportive HFU atmosphere which is our trademark, enables our students to settle into academic life quickly and to concentrate fully on their studies. Classes are small allowing personal contact with teaching staff. And modern labs, an up-to-date IT infrastructure and one of the best academic libraries in Germany are all part of the outstanding facilities on offer at HFU making it an ideal learning environment. HFU quite simply provides the best possible conditions for future academic success.
Furtwangen University’s 3 campuses are all located in Baden-Württemberg, in the south-west of Germany — quite simply a fabulous area in which to study. Quality of life here is very high. The pace of life is slower than in the big cities, you meet friends on the street, everything is close at hand, the air is fresh, and the great outdoors is on your doorstep. At HFU you study where the rest of the world goes on holiday. We have fabulous scenery and diverse landscapes - including Lake Constance with its picturesque towns and mediterranean atmosphere - we are centrally located in Europe close to the border of three other European countries which you can easily visit in your free time — plus, we have a wealth of cultural and leisure opportunities to offer. Students from other countries can experience German culture first-hand in the local restaurants, at the markets or by taking part in the many traditional festivals. And living and studying here also costs less than in other university cities in Germany, and is cheaper than many other countries in Europe, too. When your studies are over, the outstanding career opportunities available here in Germany’s top business region may even persuade you to stay, as many of our graduates do.
