Fresenius University of Applied Sciences

From its main campus in Idstein near Wiesbaden, the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences can look back on more than 167 years of tradition in the teaching of the sciences. In 1848 Carl Remigius Fresenius founded the Fresenius Chemical Laboratory, which has devoted itself from the very beginning to practical laboratory work as well as education. Certification as a privately sponsored, state-approved university of applied sciences followed in 1971.

Today, the university offers full-time and part-time Bachelor's and Master’s degrees as well as vocational training and further education at its headquarters in Idstein and its campuses in Cologne, Hamburg, Munich, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Berlin and New York. Courses are allocated to different faculties: Chemistry & Biology, Health & Social, Economics & Media and Design.

However, this purely market-oriented communication measure has absolutely no influence on the legal framework of the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences. The schools are not a substitute for the faculties, but enable the university’s marketing department not only to present the study courses, which have strongly grown in number over recent years, in the market in a more transparent and focused manner but also to better meet the needs of prospective and existing students. In this respect, all the university’s legally stipulated committees and their organization in the different faculties will continue to retain their relevance and validity in future.
