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 extraordinary, 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 programmes within the standard time to degree. Thereafter, excellent employment prospects beckon. The high job placement 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 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. Both campuses are separated by a mere 22 miles, which can be overcome with an easy ride by car or train along the green borderline to Poland.

Studying at Zittau/Görlitz University of Applied Sciences means studying in ideal conditions for both teaching and research, at an institution with more than 3,100 students and 116 professors.

Education in an interconnected world

The Zittau/Görlitz University of Applied Sciences is a truly international institution. We have partnerships with over 100 universities in 31 countries: from South Africa to the USA, from Mexico through the Netherlands to Russia and China. For our students, we are a stepping stone to the big wide world.

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