Located in the heart of the Black Forest – experience freedom in every breath – join our international community!

Furtwangen University (HFU) is a state-run university of applied sciences with approximately 4500 students, located across 3 campuses in the Black Forest, one of the most beautiful regions in Germany. We offer forward-looking degree programmes with workplace relevance, as well as exciting research opportunities, high-tech facilities, and close links with the business sector – all within a dynamic international community with a family atmosphere. We promise our students the time of their lives!

Over 60 innovative and practical degree programmes in the areas of engineering, computer science and business information systems, health and life sciences, digital media and international business are offered at both bachelor’s and master’s levels. An increasing number of programmes are taught entirely in English. We also offer PhD opportunities.

Our strong international orientation means we welcome students from around the world and encourage our students to take exchange semesters abroad. We make this easy by providing all the organisational support students need, including the option of studying at one of 150 partner universities around the globe.

All our degrees are internationally-recognised and our accreditation award means the high quality of all our degree programmes and services is guaranteed university-wide. As an Elite Sports university, we also make it easier for top athletes to continue their studies while competing.

High rankings in European university league tables reflect the excellent reputation for teaching, research and employability which we enjoy among students and employers. A practical, top quality, “Made in Germany” degree from our prestigious university guarantees excellent career prospects.

Furtwangen Campus

The international campus in the heart of the Black Forest
Join our international community!

Furtwangen, home to our first and largest campus, may look at first sight like a traditional, sleepy Black Forest town, but in reality, it is a bustling student town with a dynamic international community. HFU welcomes students from around the world, for example from Hungary, India, China, South Korea and Brazil.

Schwenningen Campus

A sense of community in an international atmosphere – be part of it!

What our students love about studying on our Schwenningen Campus is the sense of community and the international atmosphere. We focus on our students’ needs, providing individual attention in classes and outstanding personal support, but we’re also very international, welcoming students from all corners of the globe. Regular student business, social and sports activities and events mean there’s always something happening around campus.

Tuttlingen Campus

Cutting-edge technology in the beautiful Danube Valley
Study at HFU in “Medical Valley”

At our newest and smallest campus in Tuttlingen we work hand-in-hand with global players in Europe’s biggest medical technology cluster to provide innovative engineering programmes. Yet the town is surrounded by unspoilt countryside and the campus itself is idyllically located on the River Danube where, in summer, students can enjoy the Mediterranean atmosphere on the waterfront.
