We’re here to help – before and while you’re a student.

Our role at the University Student Advisory Service is to provide information and advice to prospective students about the content of courses and the criteria and requirements for studying in Kempten. In addition to this, we provide support throughout your studies and when it comes to choosing your career, also if you have any questions or problems as a student.

The University Student Advisory Service provides advice over the phone, by email, on Zoom, or in person (by appointment). Besides that, we also run some very informative online events about all sorts of issues related to studying – from the full range of degree programmes to specific courses and application procedures.

Go to our Zoom info events    

Besides prospective students and current students, we can also advise teachers on anything to do with studying and attend information events.

You can find plenty of information on our web pages. If you can’t find a straightforward answer, we’ll be happy to offer you an individual consultation.

Advice avoiding clichés – we’re on board!

What’s the No clichés initiative about?

The idea behind the No clichés initiative is to help young people find a line of work that matches their individual strengths and circumstances in life, without being swayed by clichés. The aim is to reduce the gender bias when it comes to students’ choice of degree programme.

What do we do?

Advice on studying is offered according to interest, not gender. At our university of applied sciences, we are open-minded, respectful and sensitive towards one another. Outside the classroom, we address issues of gender and diversity. Every year, we also run Girls’ Day, an information evening for parents and a mentoring programme.

How does the mentoring programme work?

The aim of the mentoring programme at Kempten University of Applied Sciences is to offer students of STEM subjects (mathematics, computer science, natural sciences and technology) guidance focusing on potential careers. We want to support women who are in the minority on their degree programmes in mapping out their plans for life and to play an active role in promoting an egalitarian society.

What’s Girls’ Day about?

It should be possible for young women to engage with studying and choosing a career without facing prejudice or insecurity.

What happens at info evenings for parents?

Parents are important points of contact with regard to the choice of degree programme and potential careers. We wish to offer them a chance to get information, ask questions and talk about the various options. The aim is to provide them with a useful tool in this way, but without stepping on the toes of the prospective students.

Make the most of your time!

Where will you wake up tomorrow? Are you ready for the best and most vibrant time of your life? Then start studying and get to know us! 

At Kempten University of Applied Sciences, you can look forward to a friendly atmosphere, a compact campus, the stunning leisure region of Allgäu, great parties and events, lecturers and professors who know you by name, and outstanding opportunities to get networking and poise yourself perfectly (even internationally) for a successful future. 

The Allgäu is the place to study for a contemporary, practically focused, cosmopolitan, research-based, individual and family-friendly experience – welcome! We can advise you and tell you more about what it’s like to live and study at Kempten University of Applied Sciences. 

  • “At Kempten University of Applied Sciences, it’s easy to make good contact with international students, for example via the Buddy Programme or in the Cultshare Clubwould be very happy to help! You go on excursions together, and there are lots of events where international students mix with locals, which I find really nice.

    What’s more, if you’ve ever dreamt of spending time abroad as a student, the International Office (IO) provides excellent support that makes it really straightforward to organise an internship or a semester at a foreign university. You are given very good advice and guided step-by-step through the application process, and if you have any questions at all, the IO is on hand to help.”

  • “Good things come in small parcels!” is how I’d sum up studying at Kempten University of Applied Sciences. The smaller number of students means closer contact. Even when we were unable to spend time on campus in person, Kempten and its surroundings were a great place to study. In the winter you can go skiing, in the summer hiking or bathing at the many lakes in the countryside, which you don’t even need a car for. Whether you share a flat, have a room in halls, or live on your own – everyone can find their niche here. I particularly value the friendly atmosphere – you meet someone you know wherever you go.”

    - Juliane Schell (Studying for a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering – Technology and Sustainability)
  • “It’s a quiet life in Kempten , everyone’s very friendly, and the Allgäu offers picturesque nature all around. I decided to move from Lower Saxony to Kempten to study, as I’d heard many positive things about Bavaria. The campus at Kempten University of Applied Sciences has an excellent layout, and it’s very easy to find your way around the faculties. It’s always cosy hanging out with the other students on campus in the sunshine. I knew that the groups in the faculties would be smaller, which would make it easier for my to learn. The professors go to a lot of effort and can tailor the lectures more individually. I live with two other people – I found the room easily in a flat-share advert. We chat, cook and even sing together sometimes to take a breather from everyday studies. In my free time, I do a lot of activities with the exchange students, whom I got to know on the university’s Buddy Programme. This helps me to improve my English and learn a bit about other cultures. I am very happy here and couldn’t imagine studying anywhere else.”

    - Jasmin Schmidt (Studying for a bachelor’s degree in Tourism Management)
  • “I’m in my fourth semester studying International Management in Kempten, and I’m very pleased with the choice that I made. You can find a flat or room very quickly – if you’re lucky, with a view of the mountains. The atmosphere on campus is friendly, and you feel very welcome, as the university isn’t too huge. That means you quickly make connections and also get to know students on other degree programmes.”

    - Anna Bauder (Studying for a bachelor’s degree in International Management)
