The University

.. has 23.000 students enrolled in over 112 different courses. With over 2000 international students, you are in good company!

As the main campus is situated on a small hill, you will certainly train your legs, but will be rewarded with a unique view over the city of Wuppertal. Fortunately, at the end of the day you can meet your friends at the university's very own "Kneipe" and enjoy a beer or two with them. Or participate in one of the many sport activities which are offered for students! Several modern and well equipped student residences are located directly next door to the university. You will have the chance to meet many fellow international and local students there, so just knock next door and make friends with people from all over the world.

Wuppertal <3

.. is home to roughly 350.000 people and situated in a valley ("Tal" in German). Giving it its name, the Wupper is a small river going through the broadly spread city. Famously for Wuppertal, the Schwebebahn (a suspension railway) goes directly above the Wupper for many kilometers, thus making it a very fast means of transportation. If you want to go a bit further (say to Düsseldorf, Cologne or even the Netherlands), you can easily take a train from the central station. By the way, public transport in all of the state (Northrhine-Westphalia) is free for university students! Though you will not have to go far to spend your free time. Besides many parks, museums and great bars, pubs and clubs, Wuppertal is surrounded by nature so you can make an easy escape from everyday life whenever you feel like.
