the Catholic University of Applied Sciences Freiburg
Who we are

The Catholic University of Applied Sciences Freiburg (Katholische Hochschule Freiburg or short: KH Freiburg) is a modern university for health and social care offering state of the art teaching and research facilities in a friendly environment.

The 1900 students from all over Germany and the neighbouring countries currently registered at the university benefit from the close sense of community and one to one attention, which fosters participation both in and outside the classrooms. At the same time, the Catholic University of Freiburg is at the forefront of German research in the areas of health and social care.

The university and all the institutions are committed to promoting diversity and welcome students from all ethnic and religious backgrounds, with or without disabilities, and students with families or children. Financial support is available for those students who might need it.
