We look forward to welcoming you at RheinAhrCampus!
RheinAhrCampus is a friendly and welcoming campus with nearly 3000 students. It was established in Remagen ten years ago by the Koblenz University of Applied Sciences to offer a variety of new degree programmes in the areas of Business & Social Services Management and Mathematics & Technology. Since then the campus has grown steadily, while remaining true to its original aim of providing first-class education in an innovative environment where lecturers and students see each other as partners.
Spending a semester at a university in a foreign country is an adventure that will make a difference to your life. As you experience a new learning environment and a new culture, you will grow personally as well as professionally. Learning a new language or improving existing language skills challenges your mind and opens up new ways of looking at things.
We have lots of experience of hosting exchange students from our partner universities, so we know how to help students to adapt to life at RheinAhrCampus, to settle in and enjoy the semester. Once you have been nominated by your home university, we will keep in touch with you and guide you through every step of your pre-arrival process, including the submission of your registration documents, your course choice and the organisation of your arrival in Remagen. And once you have arrived, we will make sure that you find your way around campus and life in Germany.
RheinAhrCampus offers many advantages to exchange students. At RAC you will share classes with our local students, as we do not put on special courses for exchange students. You will be in the same work groups as our regular students, sharing learning experiences and bringing your knowledge and experience into the group. As a result, you will quickly be integrated into life on campus and be part of what is happening here.
Accommodation and Fees:
A team at Languages / International Affairs will help you find a room. In October 2004 a dormitory (“Wohnheim”) was built right next to the campus. It holds 100 furnished rooms of which 95 are single rooms with shower, toilet and kitchenette plus internet con-nection via password for Euro 230 per month all
inclusive. Two are suitable for the disabled, two are intended for students
with chil-dren and one is a “Wohngemeinschaft” (shared flat) with 3 rooms. You
also have access to a common room with a kitchen as well as laundry facilities.
Please note that the rental periods normally run from September to February for
the winter semester and from March to August for the summer semester. A deposit
of 400 Euros is to be paid with the first rent before you arrive. The deposit
will be returned if there are no damages to the room. We normally try to find
students in the Wohnheim who would like to sublet their rooms, either private
or in the Wohnheim, during their semester abroad. To find out more about the
Wohnheim in Remagen please visit this website:
