Incoming Students

Welcome to the Catholic University of Applied Sciences of North Rhine-Westphalia in Cologne!

We are very pleased that you would like to study at the Catholic University of Applied Sciences, Cologne (KatHO NRW Cologne).

You will find important and interesting information on this homepage to help you to apply for a place at the university and information relating to your degree course at the
KatHO NRW Cologne. The information has been compiled as an initial guide to help you plan your stay in Cologne. It is intended to make it easier for you to decide to apply for a place at the KatHO NRW, to help you overcome the bureaucratic obstacles at the start of your degree course, and rapidly find the right contact points as well as providing you with the first insights into life as a student at the university. Of course this short summary cannot provide answers to all questions. That is why we invite you to contact us if you have any further questions.

The international office of the KatHO NRW Cologne is the first port of call for international students. Our tasks include supporting foreign applicants for a university place during the application procedure as well as providing advice and support to international supports concerning social, cultural, alien law issues and questions relating to the degree courses. In addition we provide advice to students with regard to periods of study and internships abroad and organise intercultural events.

We wish you a lot of success and all the best for your degree
course at the KatHO NRW and your stay in Cologne!

Yours sincerely,
Your International Office
