Universities of applied sciences

As the name implies, a university of applied sciences offers courses which are practically orientated. As at a normal university the courses offered are widely varied and classified into natural, social, and economical sciences as well as technical and artistic courses. Only the humanities are reserved for universities.

Based on scientific knowledge the objective of courses at a UAS is mainly the relation to practice. This is achieved by the learning programmes, which are in general tightly structured, and by prescribed internships, which have the objective of giving you first impressions of the professional world from the beginning of your studies on. Many UAS' also have technological transfer centres which tighten the bond to the corporate sector.
