The city of Nuernberg Nuernberg itself is a vivid city with an impressive history. It was founded in the year 1050. The castle and the old city are tourist attractions as well as the two cathedrals, the many old churches and cloisters. It is full of art and museums, the citizens come from many different cultural backgrounds. It is a city between Nazi-history and human rights.
What is a "Hochschule"? In comparison to the traditional form of the university with its focus on academic training and research Fachhochschulen = universities of applied sciences put their emphasis on practical orientation. The overall objective is to offer scientific knowledge and practical transfer. The degrees gained at universities of applied sciences qualify specifically for occupations in the field of commerce, technology, social work etc. depending on the programmes offered. A degree in a master programme qualifies for leading positions and for entering a doctoral programms. Available in English: www.ba-ma.bayern.de, www.stmwfk.bayern.de
At EVHN besides scientific knowledge and practical competence, individual growth is a very important objective. We are committed to: academic excellence, quality standards, diversity, personal attention, values, innovation.
