A Living University
Whether full-time, part-time, dual or continuing education - our forms of study are diverse and ideally complement your life situation.
In the Campus Specialists team, students talk about their everyday life as students. At live events and as podcasts, they share their insider information – up close and at first hand.
Study practically: Our laboratories & workshops
Our laboratories and workshops are an important part of our teaching. This is where we tinker, fiddle and research.
Research at Eye Level
Under the guiding principle of "research-based learning", you can familiarise yourself with the methods of application-oriented research at an early stage. Interdisciplinary projects give you the opportunity to work together with fellow students and teachers from other departments and degree programmes.
During your studies, you have the opportunity to gain experience abroad. The International Office will support you in this. International students are always welcome at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam!
Studying with child(ren) or relatives to care for is often challenging. The University of Applied Sciences Potsdam is a place for families. For university members with family responsibilities, there are, for example, flexible childcare options.
