More about Offenburg University of Applied Sciences

Offenburg University of Applied Sciences is one of Germany's premier universities for students who are keen to enter the country's media industry. Formed in the 1960s as a specialist engineering school, the university has developed strong partnerships with the region's powerful media companies (especially Hubert Burda Media, which is based on Offenburg). Nowadays, the 4,500 strong student body studies a diverse range of bachelor's and master's courses.
