With about 5,300 students, 180 professors, over 100 part-time lecturers and more than 300 technicians and administrative staff, Hochschule Mannheim is one of the largest universities of applied sciences in the Federal State of Baden-Württemberg. With all the assets of a modern university campus, Hochschule Mannheim provides students with ideal conditions to meet the requirements posed by the professional careers upon which they have set their sights. Close working contacts with industry, professional associations and cultural institutions, together with the Karl Völker Foundation affiliated to the university, represent an ideal breeding ground for internationally acclaimed research and development activities. For many years, Hochschule Mannheim has been one of the most research-intensive universities of applied sciences in Baden-Württemberg. As such, it enables its students to participate in a wide range of research and development projects prior to graduation.
The city of Mannheim is situated in a beautiful area where the Rhine and Neckar rivers meet. The hills of the Palatinate and the Odenwald forest are visible in the distance. The old university town of Heidelberg with its famous castle is less than a 15 minute train ride away. Reaching it is not a problem with the Mannheim public transport student ticket. With its population of some 320,000, its theatres, cinemas, museums, Art Nouveau buildings and new technology industrial centres, Mannheim offers a fascinating combination of culture, tradition and innovation. Conveniently for all overseas students, Mannheim is less than an hour's bus ride from Frankfurt International Airport. It has excellent train connections to important European metropolitan centres such as Berlin, Milan, Munich, Paris, and Zurich.
The International Office assists and counsels international students studying at the Hochschule Mannheim. A four-week language, culture, and orientation programme is offered before the first semester. A characteristic of the programme is the individual attention students receive, as they are taught in small groups by professors and part-time lecturers who have practical experience and who focus on teaching and research.
