Right at the top.

Our university of applied sciences is located at the very top of Germany in the Northwest. You can study there on the North Sea coast, where others go on holiday.

We are a small but excellent campus university – with our Emden Campus, the Maritime Campus Leer and the Business Campus Leer. For you that means: short distances and a personal and manageable atmosphere in which to study. You study in a university community where all university members can find their place. We don't want to be a sterile place that just teaches the curriculum but a lively campus with public discussion and academic discourse. And the goal of our efforts is one thing above all else: that you will find everything you need for your education here.

Campus locations

Twice as much studying fun: check out your place of study!

Emden Campus

The Social Work and Health, Business Studies and Technology faculties are at home here. On the approx. 90,000 m2 area you will find lecture halls, laboratories, event rooms as well as the administration and the refectory. A modular house accommodating offices and event rooms is expected to be added in the 2019 summer semester.

Studienberatung lädt für den 7. Juli zum Schnuppertag ein

Unter dem Motto „Deine Zukunftshochschule stellt sich vor“ lädt die Zentrale Studienberatung (ZSB) der Hochschule Emden/Leer für Donnerstag, 7. Juli, zu einem hochschulweiten Informationstag ein. In der Zeit von 08.45 bis ca. 15:30 Uhr können sich sowohl einzelne Studieninteressierte als auch Schülerinnen und Schüler im Klassenverband ausführlich über die verschiedenen Studiengänge und das Campusleben in Emden und Leer erkundigen. Anmeldungen sind ab sofort möglich.

Der Informationstag findet in Präsenz an der Hochschule Emden/Leer statt. Die Teilnehmenden des ersten Durchgangs können sich am Emder Campus sowie am Maritimen Campus in Leer je nach Interesse einer bestimmten Fachrichtung zuordnen lassen. Zur Auswahl stehen dabei die Studienangebote in den vier Fachbereichen: Technik (wiederum aufgeteilt in die Abteilungen Elektrotechnik & Informatik, Naturwissenschaftliche Technik und Maschinenbau), Soziale Arbeit und Gesundheit, Wirtschaft sowie Seefahrt und Maritime Wissenschaften am Standort Leer.

Nach einer aktiven Pause, einem gemeinsamen Mittagessen in der Hochschulmensa und einem „Ask the students“ im Lüttje Studi Huus geht es am Nachmittag weiter mit der zweiten Runde. Die Teilnehmenden dieses Durchgangs können sich ausschließlich über die Studienangebote am Emder Campus informieren. Im Anschluss an den Informationstag steht ein gemeinsames Ausklingen mit der Möglichkeit, weitere Fragen direkt an Studierende zu richten auf dem Programm.
