Approximate number of students
The International Office assists students from partner institutions in finding suitable accommodation in the vicinity of the university. Whenever possible, students are allocated a room in one of the university’s student halls. All students have access to a constantly up-dated database listing furnished and reasonably priced apartments which they can rent. Heilbronn University welcomes students who have special needs. The International Office is pleased to assist them individually. Studying in a foreign country can be a challenging endeavour especially for those students who are not fluent in German. Heilbronn University therefore provides German classes at elementary, intermediate and advanced levels throughout the year at low or no cost.
In addition, the following support is offered:
- student mentors (on request), - free membership in faculty-based student organisations, - detailed advice on handling residence permits and opening bank accounts, - guided tours to sites of particular interest, - on-campus German classes, - assistance in finding work placements and temporary jobs, - preferential access to cultural events (concerts, theatres, museums), - access to the university’s library services and the Internet, - information on scholarships available to international students.
Heilbronn University has been enjoying favorable reviews from the Centre of Development for University of Applied Sciences (German:„Centrum für Hochschulentwicklung“ (CHE)).

Heilbronn University is one of the few Universities of Applied Sciences that offers both Process as well as Environmental Engineering under the same course title and belongs to the elite group in the field.
