Address:
Marie-Curie-Straße 1, 47533 Kleve

Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences, with its two campus locations in Kleve and Kamp-Lintfort, is a university that is both deeply rooted in the Lower Rhine and connected to the world. Our some 7,300 students, who represent altogether more than 120 different nationalities, breathe life into our state of the art classrooms and lecture halls, our libraries, language courses, canteens and residence halls.

We currently offer 25 bachelor’s and eleven master’s degree programmes in fields spanning the scientific spectrum, including engineering, technology, economics as well as social, natural and health sciences. Our multidisciplinary curricula combine a solid scientific and methodological education with frequent opportunities to put theory into practice in practical projects, labs and exercises designed to prepare students for their future careers. With the help of our partners in industry, we provide many more opportunities for students to acquire valuable work experience and qualifications before graduation. Our flexible modes of study – full-time, part-time or dual-vocational – provide opportunities to earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree for diverse groups of people. Moreover, with around 75% of our degree programmes taught in English, we draw students from Germany, Europe and around the world. The result is a university ingrained with an international campus culture and a vibrant, intercultural exchange of ideas, experience and knowledge.
