Simply excellent – the Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, University of Applied Sciences

The Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg (H-BRS) excels in many areas: it is involved in international exchange between the students and with other universities; it provides optimum tuition and learning facilities on its campuses and regards Equal Opportunities not only as a challenge, but also as a chance. By the way, this view is shared by many others: this is not only confirmed by the steadily increasing number of our students, but also by a number of excellent ratings and achievement awards.
