Latest Information International Office: Covid-19 outbreak

Dear Sir or Madam

To slow the spread of COVID-19 the International Office is taking the following preventive actions:

  1. Face-to-face consulting will not be available unless absolutely necessary. Consulting services will be offered via email or telephone.
  2. Individual personal appointments will only be possible in urgent cases and upon prior notice. Please make an appointment by email or telephone.
  3. Observe the general hygiene measures during your appointment.
  4. Keep an adequate social distance if more than one person is waiting in front of our office.

We need to take these steps. Please help us to reduce the risk of infection. Thank you for your kind understanding.

Best regards,

Your International Office Team


Welcome to FHWS International!

Internationalisation is one of the most important considerations at our university in Germany. For over 30 years now, FHWS has welcomed international students from more than 80 countries. Today, we cooperate with over 170 partner universities worldwide.

Great emphasis is therefore placed on supporting international students. This begins when you commence your studies at FHWS: we offer an orientation programme before the start of each semester to help students find their bearings at the university and in Germany. Cultural training, events, and excursions are also offered throughout the semester.

Please explore this website for details of the different study options at FHWS. You are able to complete an entire degree in German or English, for example, or to spend one to two semesters here as an exchange student.

Are you already a student at FHWS and interested in an international exchange programme? We have compiled all important information for you and can gladly advise on this particularly exciting time in your life.

We offer lecturers and university staff information on the different options and opportunities abroad, and are of course also on hand to answer any questions.

Please note that our website is available in other languages as well:

Website in German
