More about RWU

After its reformation, the University of Applied Sciences Ravensburg-Weingarten began to offer a wider range of courses which included electronics, business, and, later, computing and nursing. It now offers a variety of courses across its four faculties. Early semesters are taught in English and later ones in German; this is to help prepare international students for work in Germany.

In partnership with the Weingarten University of Education, students are able to gain applied sciences degrees that incorporate a teaching qualification.
