Study at Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences!


Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences is a young, vibrant university in the Lower Rhine region of Germany which offers innovative and challenging degree programmes as well as first-rate research opportunities in the natural sciences, social sciences, economics, technology and engineering. We currently offer a total of 25 bachelor’s degree programmes and 11 master’s degree programmes, the majority of which are taught completely in English.

Our degree programmes aren’t designed to fill ‘academic ivory towers’, but rather produce graduates that can effectively apply theoretical knowledge to real-world contexts and meet the rigorous demands of the international job market. Through applied teaching and learning, small class sizes, a diverse atmosphere of intercultural exchange, and integrated internship/placement requirements, we train the specialists of tomorrow, who are well equipped with the skills to prosper in a globalised marketplace and make the jump from academia to a professional career.
