Kaum eine europäische Universität vereint in so ausgewogener Weise Internationalität, modernste Forschung und Lehre sowie ökonomische Stärke harmonisch mit Urbanität und Lebensqualität wie die Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf (HHU).
Sie liegt einerseits im Zentrum der Region „Rhein-Ruhr” mit über 10 Millionen Einwohnern und ist doch - bei ca. 30.000 Studierenden - überschaubare „Campus-Universität der kurzen Wege”. Damit bietet die HHU gerade auch Studierenden aus dem Ausland ein einmaliges Umfeld. Dazu aktuelle Original-Statements von Studierenden (in Englisch):
Yiliqi Yliqi, China: “HHU offers students intensive supervision but at the same time freedom and a lot of scope.”
“I’ve been enrolled at HHU since October 2013. I finished my Masters degree in Comparative Studies in English and American Language, Literature and Culture in May 2017. In the 2017/18 winter semester I started studying Romance Languages and Literatures and am also planning to do a doctorate. Since HHU is a university which is neither too small nor too big, it can offer students intensive supervision but at the same time freedom and a lot of scope.There are many opportunities at HHU for us international students to get to know the campus as well as Düsseldorf as a whole. There are lots of contact points at HHU that I can turn to, whether for general questions or ones to do with my subject. In addition, Düsseldorf is a very international city with cultural events and plenty to do in your spare time. From my experience: Studying at HHU and in Düsseldorf is well worth it!”
Valentina Dilova, Bulgaria: “I saw immediately from the rankings that HHU has an excellent reputation.”
“Studying Business Administration at HHU wasn’t exactly my plan when I came to Germany. But on my first visit to Düsseldorf I fell in love with the place and so I started enquiring about opportunities to study here. I saw immediately from the rankings that HHU has an excellent reputation. Finally I decided to study Business Administration. I soon settled down and the whole process was really easy thanks to the friendly and competent staff at the International Office and the Student Service Centre. Now I’m almost at the end of my programme and never once have I regretted my decision. All professors at the Faculty of Business Administration and Economics know exactly how to motivate us students. Their classes are easy to follow and include lots of examples from everyday practice. There are also many opportunities for personal and professional development, such as membership in various student organisations or by participating in different workshops. There are also free language courses leading to certificates recognised throughout the whole of Europe. Soon I won’t be leaving HHU just with my Bachelor degree but also with certificates from two internships and in three different foreign languages as well as a lot of wonderful memories.”
Prakash C. Rathi, India: "I would recommend studying at HHU also because it is located in a city consistently ranked high in the list of best cities to live worldwide."
"Powered by cutting-edge technology and professors of repute along with a wide multi-cultural student base, HHU is a perfect place for research and study". I started my PhD at the Institute of Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemistry, HHU, in April 2010. Since then, I have been greatly impressed by the warmth of my fellow students, the helping nature of the staff at the International Office, and of course by the overall environment which encourages high-quality research in natural sciences. Doing a PhD here provides me with ample opportunities for starting a career in the biotech industry in India or even in Germany. Despite being a non-German-speaker, I never had any difficulty in getting things done either at the University or outside. However, I am learning German and it's really interesting to learn a new language. Apart from its academic excellence, HHU also enjoys the fact that it is located in a city consistently ranked high in the list of best cities to live worldwide. The city offers exciting night life on top of being a hub of the advertising, telecommunication and fashion industries. Studying at HHU has been like living my dream in reality and I would recommend studying at HHU to aspirants from my country. This will provide them with a perfect blend of high-class education along with an exciting life in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Olha Prud, Ukraine: "I would recommend studying at HHU because you can uncover new horizons for yourself."
I am in the sixth term of my Media and Cultural Sciences course at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. Right now I am busy with my exams and will soon write my Bachelor thesis. I enjoy studying at HHU because here you can design your curriculum according to your own interests, which is very motivating and makes studying even more interesting. Düsseldorf is a beautiful and cosy city with a lot of art and beautiful sights. There are lots of lovely things to discover here. I would recommend studying at HHU to my compatriots because you can uncover new horizons for yourself here and are given a lot of support as a foreign student. A degree from HHU means a lot to me because I will have better prospects in my future professional life with a university qualification.
