The Aachen campus offers its some 750 students a variety of degree programmes: social work, childhood education, nursing, and co-operative management. It also has the only programme of study in Germany especially designed for mothers. A student initiative provides professional childcare for students with children, while the campus café Sozial (Punkt) offers a lively meeting place for faculty, students, and visitors. The campus is located in a green outlying district of Aachen with convenient connections to the city centre.

A mid-size town with a population of around 250,000, Aachen’s proximity to Belgium and the Netherlands gives it international flair. It is known as the sponsor of the prestigious Charlemagne Prize – as well as of the tongue-in-cheek Medal for Combating Deadly Seriousness. The city has a rich cultural and architectural heritage: Its history stretches back to the Neolithic Age and it was the seat of Charlemagne’s rule. The city is also known for its research institutions, its exquisite thermal baths and the World Equestrian Festival.
