- Private Institution Type
PFH Private University of Applied Sciences was recognised by the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture in 1995, which means that it is Lower Saxony's oldest private, state-recognised university.
Through our application-oriented and practically relevant teaching in study programmes, we impart well-founded theoretical as well as practical knowledge and skills to both students in their initial training and working professionals in terms of lifelong learning, using a range of different teaching methods in on-campus and distance-learning courses while taking increasing digitisation into account.
Practical orientation in teaching and research, particularly in the fields of management, innovation and technology, is the overriding principle governing our actions.
The International Office is the reference point for all questions about study abroad, teaching and research exchanges and international university partnerships. We will be pleased to advise you about planning your stay abroad, assist you with your projects, and look forward to welcoming international students at PFH Göttingen.
By means of the "social points" scheme, PFH asks you to carry out voluntary work and rewards social commitment, which you may anyway undertake in your spare time. You can achieve the social points, which are an obligatory part of the Management study programme, through very different activities, for instance by organising fund-raising campaigns, commitment to charitable associations or participation in the Students' Council.
PFH Private University of Applied Sciences is state-accredited.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, StudyPortals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
