The University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (FHWS) was established in 1971, with campuses in two locations in Würzburg and Schweinfurt. Today, the FHWS is one of the largest universities of applied sciences in Bavaria (southern Germany). As a public university, we guarantee an excellent academic education recognised throughout the world.
With its 10 departments and more than 40 undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, as well as six research institutes, the FHWS offers a broad, practice- and future-oriented course programme. Within the FHWS i-Campus concept, English Bachelor's programmes add to the wide range of German programmes. Courses take place in modern lecture rooms and laboratories equipped with innovative technology and state-of-the-art appliances.
Low student-teacher ratio
Studying at FHWS is characterised by small study groups and a low student-teacher ratio. Through a great share of seminar papers, students learn to work independently. Additionally, project work promotes the students' team-working abilities.
Education with a special focus on application and practice
Almost 200 professors with solid professional experience from industry and business provide scientific education with special relevance to application and practice.
The university collaborates closely with regional and trans-regional businesses. Students benefit from this close collaboration by being able to do internships and having the possibility to write their Bachelor's theses in one of these companies. Moreover, they have the chance to build a network for their future career.
FHWS excels due to its international orientation. For more than 30 years, the university has welcomed students from over 80 countries. Worldwide, FHWS is associated with more than 170 universities.
