Your studies in Wuppertal: everything you need to know


Are you still thinking about whether studying at the University of Wuppertal is the right thing for you?


There are many arguments for taking the step to Wuppertal! Apart from the fact that Wuppertal is a great city, the university offers a wide variety of degree programmes, and the students are also very diverse and open-minded. With just under 23,000 students, the university is small compared to other universities in the area, which has never been noticed in a negative way, but rather ensures that you sometimes run into a familiar face on campus.

The International Students Team of the university takes care of events and a colourful social programme, so that contact with other students and especially other international students is ensured even beyond your courses. Our Stammtisch (regulars’ table) takes place weekly, where everyone who wants to and has the time can make new contacts and form friendships.

You are also welcome to read the reports of experience of other international students, who write about their experiences here at the university and during their stay.
