Pen Portrait

There are many places where you can study in an outstanding environment. But the Zittau/Görlitz University of Applied Sciences is one-of-a-kind, sui generis. Embedded in the glorious landscapes of the ‘Trinational Triangle’ – the triple borderland where Germany, the Czech Republic and Poland come together – and bearing all the hallmarks of the region, our institution offers students a place of study that is truly extra-ordinary, unique in kind and first rank in quality.

No tuition fees, a low cost of living, a close-knit atmosphere and intensive academic tutelage plus state-of-the-art facilities and numerous connections with regional, national and international companies – all this makes for ideal conditions in which to study effectively and in close contact with the world of praxis. And these same factors are assuredly the reason why the large majority of our students complete their courses of study within the appointed time. Thereafter, excellent employment prospects beckon. The high job placement and brokerage quota of our graduates is not least a result of the excellent quality of our teaching and research.

In addition, cutting-edge laboratories and lecture theatres, the new eco-based Zittau campus and the new Görlitz campus on the very banks of the River Neisse offer students both the amenities and a milieu for studying that they will seek in vain elsewhere.

Studying at the Zittau/Görlitz University of Applied Sciences means studying in ideal conditions for both teaching and research, at an institution with more than 3,800 students, 130 professors and over 100 research assistants.

Education in an interconnected world

The Zittau/Görlitz University of Applied Sciences is a truly international institution. We have partnerships with 126 universities in 40 countries: from South Africa to the USA, from Brazil through Great Britain to Russia. For our students, we are a stepping stone to the big wide world.

Further key elements are cooperations with a number of international commercial partners, internationally recognized qualifications, and our tri-national Neisse University network. Studying at Zittau/Görlitz means studying in the course of globalization.
