The alliance members collaborate with more than 1400 university partners worldwide.

The programs include:

  • engineering and computer science
  • business, management and economics
  • social sciences and life sciences
  • architecture, art and design

For international students we offer summer programs and semester and year exchange opportunities, as well as Bachelor's and Master's programs, including graduate programs in English, for degree-seeking students. 

Please note that there are three distinct programs and deadlines to consider for UAS7:

Since 2006, the Study and Internship Program (SIP) has enabled highly qualified undergraduates from U.S. and Canadian colleges and universities to experience the German approach to hands-on education at a member of UAS7, a consortium of Germany's top Universities of Applied Sciences. SIP students spend a semester studying at a UAS7 campus and a semester interning. 

Starting in 2013, our offerings have been expanded to include the Internship Program (IP) andStudy Program (SP). IP students will intern at laboratories at UAS7 members over a period of 2-6 months. SP students will study for a semester at a UAS7 member.
