Facts about Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University Heidenheim

Internationalization is one of the most important strategic goals of Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University Heidenheim.

Surveys showed that more than 35% of our students spend one semester abroad. This figure is well above average and the rate of outgoing students exceeds even those of big universities like Heidelberg or Tübingen. We have partner universities worldwide where students can either spend a semester abroad Study Exchange or do an internship in an international company Work Exchange .

In 1974, the Öffnet einen internen Link im aktuellen FensterUniversity of Cooperative Education (now Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University) – in German "Berufsakademie" (now Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg) – was launched as an innovative new project in the Federal State of Baden-Wuerttemberg in the Southwest of Germany. It was designed to provide students with a post-secondary education based on the unique combination of theoretical studies and on-the-job training. UCE students alternate between academic and professional training, giving them the opportunity to immediately apply concepts learnt in the classroom to their workplace and in return bring new ideas from their training companies to the university.


Heidenheim University of Cooperative Education is accredited by Britain’s Open University. Third year students may enrol at Open University and after graduation they are awarded the OU "Bachelor's Degree with Honours"  in addition to the German “Bachelor".
