General information and assistance

General information on the higher education landscape in Baden-Württemberg

The higher education landscape in Baden-Württemberg is extremely diverse and includes universities, universities of applied sciences, colleges of education, dual universities, and colleges of art and music.   

In addition to the classic universities in Heidelberg, Tübingen and Freiburg, there are younger universities such as Hohenheim, Karlsruhe, Constance, Stuttgart, Mannheim and Ulm, which offer their own subject specializations (e.g. engineering). The Universities of Applied Sciences offer scientific teaching with a high degree of practical orientation. In the case of training at the Cooperative State University, there is already an apprenticeship relationship with a company in Baden-Württemberg during the course of study, and you earn your own money while you are still studying. Teachers for secondary schools, elementary schools and junior high schools are trained at the Universities of Education

Scholarship opportunities for refugee scientists

Please note that nominations for other groups of individuals are not covered by this, but must still be submitted by March 4, 2022. 

Third-party proof of endangerment is not required for this group of individuals. Instead, the individual risk situation must be presented in the form of a personal statement by the nominee in German or English of up to one page in length. Existing evidence from a third party can be enclosed as a supplement. 

Further information on scientists at risk can be found at Scholars at Risk (SAR) and CARA.

Universities of Applied Sciences

The 23 universities of applied sciences in Baden-Württemberg (including universities of applied sciences for the public sector) - also called "universities of applied sciences" since 2010 - form a dense network of higher education institutions that provide you with an application-oriented scientific education in the following fields:

    Mathematics, computer science and natural sciences
    Agricultural, forestry and nutritional sciences
    Law and economics
    Health care, social sciences, linguistics and cultural studies
    Design, media and information science.

The goal of a university degree is to prepare you for later professional activities that require the independent application of scientific knowledge and methods by providing you with a practical education. Compared to an education at a research university, studies at universities of applied sciences are more streamlined, structured in smaller groups and generally include a practical semester.


Most universities of applied sciences (HaW) offer a 7-semester bachelor's program and a 3-semester master's program. A course of study at a HaW is characterized by practice-relevant objectives, bachelor's and master's theses with tasks from the professional fields, application-related knowledge, job-related research and the teaching of practical skills.
