No student exchange until the end of September 2021

As we do not yet know how the Corona virus will continue to affect Germany and its higher education, DHBW Heidenheim has decided not to run the International Program until the end of September 2021.

If you have any questions please contact Ingrid Lange.

International Exchange Program

Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University Heidenheim offers English-taught classes to welcome international students into the student body. In keeping with our education model, international students can attend classes at the university and then possibly complete an internship at one of our cooperating companies after the study period ends. 

In addition to the academic course work we also offer a cultural program and trips to different cities. If there are enough applicants, a trip to Berlin can be organized.

To help students to integrate better, we have a buddy program run by the student representatives of DHBW Heidenheim.
