FHWS is a "Partner University of High Performance Sports"

FHWS helps students with an outstanding athletic performance in the A-, B- or C-class (German classfication system for students, who are sponsored by sports associations) combine their studies and high performance sports. Students can, e.g., request a semester on leave of absence as "tournament semester". Moreover, students will be accommodated in case exam dates collide with tournaments or in case regular attendance at a seminar is not possible. 
For this reason, the University of Würzburg, FHWS, the Studentenwerk Würzburg, the German University Sports Federation (adh), the German Fencing Federation and the German "Olympiastützpunkt"/Fencing-Club in Tauberbischofsheim have reached a co-operation agreement in October 2002.
