FAQs Frequently asked questions

We would be happy to answer this question for you on site.

Why? Because we would like to show you what really makes us different and why it is worth investing in studying with us. Compared to state universities, you will study in small study groups at the SRH University of Applied Sciences in North Rhine-Westphalia or at the campus in Leverkusen. The supervision by the lecturers is very intensive. You benefit from short distances, quick answers and a fast course of studies - everything is personally tailored to you and to your academic success.

Clearly, our CORE principle, a teaching and learning principle that has been scientifically proven to bring more success.

In the CORE principle, you acquire the ability to perform tasks and solve problems in a goal-oriented, situational and responsible manner. In addition to specialized knowledge, successful action requires a whole range of other competencies that must be trained, learned and reflected upon in teaching.

Example: Anyone who has mastered various negotiation methods in theory is far from being a successful negotiator. Only the interaction with the negotiating partner shows whether all the necessary competencies are present. We impart this competence during teaching through the CORE principle.
