Kamp-Lintfort Kloster


A Rhineland city with a famous Cistercian Abbey

Located near the German-French border in North-Rhine Westphalia, Kamp-Lintfort is probably best known for Kamp Abbey - the oldest Cistercian monastery in Germany, having been founded in 1123. The abbey is now a tourist attraction, but the town continues to thrive, with access to the region's dynamic industrial and services economy.

More about Kamp-Lintfort


Foreign-Born Population





Kamp-Lintfort is a relatively small city, with 37,300 people, and a branch of the Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences. The city offers many historic sights, including Kamp Abbey, Eyll Castle, and the Altsiedlung - a planned workers neighborhood from the 19th century.

Studying and Working in Kamp-Lintfort

Academic life in Kamp-Lintfort is based around the city's branch of Rhine-Waal University of the Applied Sciences. Opened in 2011, the Kamp-Lintfort campus is the university's newest location, and offers a range of practical degrees. Options range widely, from life sciences to robotics, social sciences, and communications, with Bachelor's and Master's levels both catered for.

Rhine-Waal University provides many English-language degrees, making admissions easier for international students. For instance, biomaterials, industrial engineering, and bionics B.Sc. courses are all taught in English, so German language qualifications won't be needed. Career prospects are strong, with the university's Centre for Research, Innovation and Transfer offering direct links to the region's industrial sector. This should make it easy to find posts in manufacturing, product design, financial services, and life sciences.
