5 Reasons for Studying at TH Lübeck
We are living in an engineered World! At TH Lübeck we are driven by a single goal: To make it a little better through education, research and innovation. If you are looking for practice-oriented studies and having a meaningful impact through your future profession, TH Lübeck might be the right place for you.
Do you want to gain a professional edge? With our Bachelor's and Master's degree programs in the fields of technology, natural sciences, economics, architecture and design, we prepare you perfectly for your professional life. These are five arguments in favor of studying at Technische Hochschule Lübeck:
1. Personal Attention
We are measured by the success of our students. In Lübeck you are more than just a number! You learn in small groups and benefit from a close relationship with your professors. Many of them will know you by name within a short period of time and keep an eye on your development. Plus, all of our lecturers are available for questions and consultations. In addition, the campus isn't spread out over the city, but centrally located. This means that you don't have to drive all over town between lectures. Instead, you can focus on your studies and social life, use the extra time to meet up with your study groups or relax with friends in the Carlebach Park directly next to the campus.
2. Practical Relevance
Do you know the difference between a university and a university of applied sciences (UAS)? While equal in terms of quality, these two types of universities have different goals: A university is generally theory-driven and research-oriented, while a university of applied sciences, like TH Lübeck, focusses on the application of academic knowledge. All professors at TH Lübeck have experience working outside of academia in the private sector, they can provide you with hands-on experience during your studies and prepare you for a promising career. During your studies at TH Lübeck you will learn more than just gray theory. Tangible practical projects - often in direct cooperation with companies - pave the way to your future career. Valuable additional qualifications can be obtained that would otherwise cost a lot of money. As a result, our graduates generally earn more in their first job than regular university graduates.
Globalization and internationalization are two of the defining trends of the 21st century and play a major role in business, science, the environment, and also our private life. TH Lübeck has developed strategies to help you benefit from internationalization. We give you the opportunity (e.g.) to obtain double degrees with foreign universities, take free language courses, and provide you with considerable support in planning semesters or internships abroad.
4. Dedicated Students
Studying is more than just learning! Your university years are traditionally considered a time in which you can realize your potential. At TH Lübeck you will find many dedicated students who participate in committees, are socially engaged and launch initiatives that help make our world a little bit better, brighter and more interesting. If you yourself want to help shape our world, you will find many like-minded people at TH Lübeck. Why not join the Students for Sustainability, build your own racing car with the "Seagulls", or get involved in our campus beekeeping?
5. Attractive Location
Our students appreciate the high recreational value of Lübeck and the surrounding region. Due to the close proximity to the Baltic Sea, you can choose from a wide range of cultural and sport activities. Despite the relatively small number of students in relation to the total population, they shape the cityscape. Rent and cost of living are moderate compared to other university cities. After a long day of studies or a trip to the beach, you can end the day in the old town in one of the cozy pubs, bars, theaters and cinemas. And if that is not enough, you still have the metropolitan region of Hamburg in immediate vicinity.
