Welcome to Augsburg
Augsburg University of Applied Sciences
With around 6,200 students from 70 countries, our University is one of the largest universities of applied sciences in the Bavarian Swabia region. At our institution, teaching and learning are integrated in a climate of tolerance, mutual respect and openness to the latest developments in research and technology. Our focus is on the whole person: During their studies, students gain more than technical knowledge. The acquirement of social skills that strengthen their personal development is at least equally as important. Our mission is to develop our students into personalities that are sought-after in business and society. We wish to achieve this objective with teamwork, motivation, creativity and practical relevance.
Augsburg is a lively student city. It is one of the oldest cities in Germany with a fascinating history as a former Free Imperial City. Students like most the vibrant cultural life with many museums and festivals, as well as theatre, ballet and art galleries; the charming green environment with huge forests, meadows, rivers and streams; the narrow alleys and the ancient buildings. And, if that’s not enough: the cosmopolitan city of Munich is only an hours drive away.
