Why should I study here?

The Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences was founded in 1971. With effect from 1 January 2003, it passed into the sponsorship of the Stiftung 'Fachhochschule Osnabrück’ as an incorporated foundation under public law. This provides us with important design leeway while demonstrating a significant sign of trust from the country with regard to the university's performance. 

What are the admissions criteria?

Germany has changed their admissions requirements again, starting for the 2021-22 school year, and now accepts AP scores! Students who want to apply to programs related to Humanities, Social Sciences, Law, and Economics need scores of 3+ in English. A foreign language that needs to be French, Spanish, Latin or German, Math or natural science which can be Calc, Bio, Chem, or both Physics C tests. In addition, I score in European History, American History, Computer Science, or Macro+Micro Economics. 

Students who want to apply for programs centered around Math, Science, and Technology need scores of 3+ in Math (specifically Calculus). Natural Science (Bio, Chem, or both Physics C tests). Language (French, Latin, German, Spanish, or English Lit or Lang/Comp). Addition score in European History, American History, Computer Science, or Macro+Micro Economics. 

Alternately, students with an IB diploma, an associate's degree, and 2 years of college credits (including specified courses) are also admissible

What is student life like?

In recent years, many large construction projects with a volume of approx. €80 million have been built at the Westerberg Campus. In addition to the new cafeteria with up to 5,000 meals per day, the new modern lecture hall attracts attention due to its striking architecture and color. In 2015, the new 8,500-square-meter library was inaugurated. In contrast to these, there are also over 100-year-old historical buildings which are used by the university and achieved great military importance, particularly during the First World War and during the period of the British occupation of Osnabrück. Get moving after studying, try new sports together with others or just clear your head - students have numerous sports and relaxation facilities available in Osnabrück and Lingen. The General Students' Committee (AStA) takes care of all interests, wishes, and recommendations of students and works closely with the student Parliament and Student Councils.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
We're going to be talking about the differences in the educational experience, meaning the academic side of things that students have in Europe versus in the US. So I'm always taken aback when people assume that universities in the US are the best globally.
