Program Details

Fulda University of Applied Sciences is a practice-oriented university with an international profile and a strong focus on applied research. Fulda University is the first university of applied sciences in Germany with the independent right to confer the doctorate. Founded in 1974, the university currently encompasses eight departments with 65 study programs, approx. 9,000 students, and 1,200 international students from more than 100 countries.

The study program “International Health Sciences” provided by the University is the first basic study course in Germany addressing the health challenges in the globalized world, now providing an opportunity to complete undergraduate studies with a focus on international or global health in Germany. The program is bilingual (English, German) and structured differently for students whose primary language is German and for students with other native languages. 

During the study program, students will have the opportunity to choose a focus area or specialization, in which they will deepen their understanding of a particular aspect of health sciences (30 to 40 ETCS credits, depending on the student’s choice of modules). The relevant modules are generally offered in German, with some of them available in English as well. The three specializations available include the following:

  • Health Promotion
  • Health Economics and Health Policy
  • Health Management

Applicants who have already graduated from a study program that qualifies for a health profession and are entitled to practicing this profession in Germany may apply to have this completed program accepted as a substitute for the specialization. It would then be recorded as such in the graduation certificate. The training will be complemented by a targeted, field-specific broadening of intercultural and foreign language skills (60 to 70 ECTS credits, depending on your choice of modules). For students whose first language is German, this part of the program includes a compulsory semester of study abroad (30 ECTS credits). Students whose first language is not German can choose whether they want to obtain equivalent ECTS credits during a semester abroad or by taking relevant modules at a German university. An internship of 480 hours (= three months) is to be completed during the seventh semester.

There are NO tuition fees for the course.
