We are committed to producing global graduates with international degrees: 188 partner universities around the world provide students with many opportunities to gain experience and earn credits towards their degree through foreign exchange semesters, internships and double-degree studies abroad. In fact, all undergraduate degrees include a compulsory internship semester, which can be undertaken either locally or abroad.
Our student population of 7,000, including 20% international students, study a range of degree courses taught in English or German. All our courses are officially accredited by FIBAA and ASIIN according to international standards.
We cooperate with more than 500 regional and multinational companies, including global players such as BMW, MAN, Continental, ZF and Siemens, where students can gain invaluable work experience. In addition to this, the university's Career Service hosts a mentoring programme, in which students cooperate with a professional business mentor to help them achieve their professional goals. This active promotion soothes the transition from academic to professional career, meaning our graduates are particularly successful in the job market.
Students are distributed throughout eight faculties on two campuses. The main campus in Deggendorf has a large range of degree programmes instructed in either English or German. On the European Campus Rottal-Inn, all students are taught exclusively in English (with international students attending German lessons). These two campuses are one hour’s drive apart and both are in Bavaria, Southern Germany.
We consider a great lifestyle to be an important factor for the well-being of our students. Students are supported with many facilities, such as a range of student clubs, an extensive sports programme (we are currently the German university football champions), large International Office, Language Centre and Career Service. We organise an open day event on campus and a music festival annually each summer.
All faculties, workshops and service centres for our students are based in, on and around our campus, creating an open, friendly and communicative environment among staff, students and teaching staff.
