Logo UAS Hof

Founded in 1994, Hof University of Applied Sciences offers a very attractive study environment with its modern architecture and state-of-the-art classrooms and laboratories. You will receive first-class, hands-on education here. As a practice-oriented University of Applied Sciences with integrated internships in all programmes, the employability of our graduates is the main focus of our teaching.

We offer more than 30 modern Bachelor's and Master's programmes in Business, Computer Science, and Engineering in English and German language. For students with at least one year of professional experience, Hof University Graduate School offers exciting further education opportunities completely in English language. 

Strong practice orientation

All professors have a strong academic background as well as extensive practical experience in industry. Teaching is based on innovative methods to convey application-oriented knowledge. As we foster a continuous dialogue with industry, our graduates are ideally prepared for the domestic and international labour markets. 

Intensive personal support

We are well known for our friendly study atmosphere. An excellent student-lecturer ratio allows for frequent and personal contact between students and professors and an active exchange of ideas. Students benefit from intensive supervision and numerous personal support services such as orientation weeks, social integration events, and housing support. In addition, we have a strong focus on career promoting activities for students (e.g. career talks, job fairs, company visits).

The University’s outlook is extremely international, with more than 130 partner universities all over the world. About twenty percent of students come from abroad, creating a truly open and multinational atmosphere.

Applied research

The University's four research institutes concentrate on Information Systems, Biopolymers, Material Sciences as well as Water and Energy Management. The guiding principles for our research are practice-orientation, internationalization and resource efficiency (focusing on indoor climate systems / water).

Students who are interested in a startup or in the formation of a company get advice and support at Einstein1, the digital business incubator on campus of Hof University.

Theresienstein
Theresienstein

Hof is a medium-sized town located at the top of Bavaria and in the heart of Europe, right in the middle of Berlin, Munich, and Prague. Hof has a population of about 50,000 and is an appealing and safe university town with plenty of leisure activities. To relax and unwind, there are numerous bars, cinemas, an orchestra, a theatre, a landscaped park called Theresienstein, and a beautiful lake – the Untreusee. Hof is also known for the International Hof Film Festival, which is one of the most important German film festivals.

The region around Hof has the second-highest industrial density in all of Europe, mainly specialising in manufacturing machinery and plastic (automobile) parts. The companies are mostly small and medium-sized businesses, the so-called hidden champions, and they provide ample opportunities for internships and entry jobs.

The city of Hof is surrounded by beautiful nature. It is located between the low mountain regions of the Fichtelgebirge and the Franconian Forest on the banks of the Saale River. You will find excellent possibilities for all outdoor sporting activities such as cycling, hiking, climbing, and skiing.
