Neu Ulm University of Applied Sciences

Our students learn at a place where people reach out to and do not shun each other. The latter is often the case at large universities. We're different. We offer students seminars with a moderate number of participants and intensive support: The lecturers and students get to know each other during their course of study. Our mission – closeness and partnership – is a reality.



Since it was founded in 1994, the Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences (HNU) has evolved into an indispensable educational establishment in the Neu-Ulm/Ulm region. We now have more than 3,800 students in our three departments of Health Management, Information Management, and Business and Economics and our Centre for Professional and Postgraduate Studies. 


At the HNU we educate experts and managers who are equipped to act responsibly and think in a solution oriented way, we also encourage them to participate in foreign exchanges in order to expand their horizons. Students acquire practical knowledge in our BA and MA degree programmes. We offer some degree programmes in cooperation with the Ulm University of Applied Sciences.  Our range of postgraduate degree programmes is aimed at enterprises and junior executives among health professionals, engineers and IT experts, as well as all other working professionals who need business management know-how for their vocation.


As a University of Applied Sciences, we strive to intensify dialogue between business and science and to promote application-focused research.

Working with business enterprises and with private and public research institutions, we set out on a systematic scientific search for knowledge. In this, the focus is on research and development collaboration aimed at applications geared to business and social needs.

Working together with enterprises provides impetus from actual practice, some of which directly results in new training content and structures at the university of applied sciences. This means that our students gain their qualifications on the basis of the very latest scientific findings.


The Career Service of the Alumni & CampusClub keeps close contact with companies and former students of the HNU. Using this network we can offer excellent support in searching for internships or a job.

Students can use our board for jobs and internships to explore the current offers and select them according to different parameters.

Businesses can place advertisements free of charge and recruit future employees for their company.

Student dormitories are amongst the most inexpensive accommodation options. There are different dormitories in Ulm and Neu-Ulm, some of them are operated by public institutions, some commercially. Prices for accommodation vary according to location, size (single room or flat) and existing furniture and/or joint facilities.

As a rule regarding the dormitories run by public institutions, students can stay in the dormitories for up to six semesters. Deposits must be made; currently they usually amount to € 300. It is advisable to look for a room in good time since rooms are assigned in the order of incoming applications. There are long waiting lists, especially during the semester.

Further activities are also in the pipeline, including a rock-climbing course. The HNU has been a partner of top athletes since the beginning of 2005.

Student clubs

The Students' Union consists of elected members from the student body and volunteers who work within the various academic departments.

We have a choice on the distribution of student fees or have the right to vote on the appointment of new professors. In addition, we try to work with the various departments to enhance your student life through numerous events and activities.

Student Reviews

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

One of he dormitory that university recomends is not in good conditions. International office is kind and helpful, but some teachers arenït. They are pretty german-oriented (local students tend to be lazy to speak in English, or be open with international students)

Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

Totally satisfied with German teaching methods. I see quite differences regarding to Czech or Greek education. Mostly proffesors only lead the way of topic and students (locals and internationals together) discuss. Also we are learning things which you really use in your life and which are actual. Also we are writing lots of case studies and essays and making...
