The Fachhochschule Westküste has been an initiative of local entrepreneurs and politicians. It was founded in 1993 and startet in rented rooms. Thus, already in 1997 the first graduates left our university.
In 2000 the university moved to the new buildings east of Heide. In 2008 already 400 beginners started their studies and nowadays more than 1100 are enrolled at the FHW.
