Master's Programmes



Kempten University of Applied Sciences was established in 1978 with 82 students in a rented building. While the accession of Pope John Paul II, the first balloon crossing of the Atlantic and the last VW Beetle to be manufactured in Germany were making the national and international headlines, the breaking news in Allgäu was the new university and its ambitious target of 1.000 students.

Student Reviews

Should you want to learn what you need and nothing else
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

Even though the education is good, this most certainly is a university -of applied sciences- If you want to explore your field or human understanding beyond the scope of the mandated study programme, you will find well-meaning professors but not a whole lot of opportunities to do so. Overall this is an academic professional schooling, not much more

University is very good and course also first class

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's sort of hard really you have to learn a new way of learning as you sit down in a lecture hall and you have to write down whatever the teacher says. If you need help or your slow you'll have to meet the teacher some other time. Lessons aren't exciting as well as they don't grab the people's attention so it's hard to learn and concentrate
