Despite declining cohorts: student numbers for the summer semester at the previous year’s level

Hof University of Applied Sciences is starting the 2024 summer semester with over 3,700 students at its four campuses in Hof, Münchberg, Kronach and Selb, matching last year’s figures. A total of 541 first-semester students (plus 134) are starting their studies in the Faculties of Economics, Computer Science, Engineering and Interdisciplinary and Innovative Sciences as well as in the Faculty of Continuing Education.

The total number of national and international applicants reached a new high with over 3,600 and an additional increase of 17%.

We are very pleased about this development, as many colleges and universities currently have to reckon with falling student numbers due to the declining national cohorts. In the case of Hof University of Applied Sciences, however, our consistent international orientation is paying off and the number of German students is also encouragingly stable overall!”

Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Jürgen Lehmann, President of the University

And further: “Our focus on topics such as sustainability, digitalization and interdisciplinarity is generating a great deal of interest in our courses,” explains University President Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Jürgen Lehmann.

The Master’s degree course in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics was particularly popular during the application period, which has now closed. The newly introduced Master’s degree course in Administrative Informatics has also been a complete success, with a total of 120 new students enrolling in the first semester.
