Simply excellent - the Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg. The H-BRS does its best in many areas: it takes care of the international exchange between students and with other universities, it provides optimal teaching and learning facilities at its locations and it sees the topic of equality not only as a task, but as an opportunity. Incidentally, many people are of this opinion, as evidenced not only by the growing number of our students, but also by a whole series of good evaluations and recognising awards.
