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 gives advice over the phone, by email 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.
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.

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.
“I already studied for my bachelor’s degree in Tourism Management here in Kempten, and immediately felt completely at home. It’s a small campus, so you get to know students on other courses incredibly quickly. And you’re not just a ‘statistic’ to the lecturers and professors. Kempten is a lovely town that has everything that you might need. OK, so the nightlife might not compare with Munich, but I can afford a nice flat in the centre of town with a big balcony. And the Allgäu region with all the leisure opportunities that it offers and the mountains make the quality of life here even better! So I didn’t stop to think twice about staying in Kempten to study for my master’s.”
“Beautiful spots to chill and have barbecues, lakes, plenty of sports, a great pedestrian zone with everything you could wish for, and parties big and small – that’s Kempten. I really enjoy studying here and like the fact that everything is a bit more cosy and rural, accommodation isn’t so impossible to find, and the mountains are just around the corner. You certainly won’t get bored here.”
“As I was born in Kempten, it seemed natural for me to study at our university of applied sciences, but my classmates from further afield also feel very at home here. As it’s quite a small town, you can quickly find somewhere to live, and there are plenty of well-paid part-time jobs too. Life is very laid back, and you easily get to know everyone, around campus, too, including the lecturers. Numerous partner universities offer a wide range of options for studying abroad, and you also get to know lots of exchange students every semester on campus.”
“Thanks to Kempten University of Applied Sciences’ focus on international relations and the efforts of the International Office, I have already been able to spend two semesters of my degree programme in Tourism Management abroad. I had a great time and gained a lot of valuable experience during my internship Cape Town, South Africa, and the semester I spent studying at a partner university in Edinburgh, Scotland. And the great thing about Kempten is that you’re always happy to come back!”
“I have found Kempten to be very nice, the ambience with the people and other students is always friendly and respectful, the experience of being abroad and knowing another culture is enriching, now if you add to that the students from all around the world on exchange semesters, you get a great experience. I chose Kempten because of the cooperation and agreements it has with my University in Colombia. Before I came, I had already heard good things about their work and knew some of the Kempten students, which encouraged me to do it. Additionally, the official agreement makes it easier for me to get an equivalent degree back in my country.”
“I have spent the past two years living and studying in Kempten, a small, pretty and historical German town. I have already had the chance to gain many impressions. In spring, you can go to visit Schloss Neuschwanstein near Füssen; in summer, sunbathing on Mainau island or rowing on Lake Constance; in autumn, you can watch the local tradition of farmers bringing the cows back down the slopes and enjoy an Allgäu beer; and of course winter is also fabulous – skiing in Oberstdorf, for example. I like Kempten University of Applied Sciences and have made lots of friends here. My German classmates are friendly. Although I don’t find the German language very easy, I can still understand lectures. I think Kempten University of Applied Sciences is great.”
