Welcome to FHWS

The University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (FHWS) is among the biggest universities of applied sciences in Bavaria and the only one with a special focus on English-taught undergraduate programmes.

Situated in Lower Franconia, an administrative district to the north of the federal state of Bavaria, we offer studies at two locations Würzburg and Schweinfurt, respectively, about 40 kilometres apart. At ten faculties we offer more than 40 bachelor’s and master’s programmes. At the moment, you can already study seven of them completely in English and the number of English-taught programmes is still rising.

If you are interested in studying at FHWS we’d recommend the Homepage of our International Office. You will find ample information about studying to a full degree in German or English or for just a semester abroad at FHWS.

Or just surf our website for more information, for example, about

and much more.
