Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences in numbers


The Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences has always preserved its character of a familiar teaching and learning place. And that despite strong growth in recent years. In the nationwide university landscape, this growth is not exceptional. In the 2002/2003 winter semester, approximately 1.9 million (mostly) young people studied at Germany's universities, in the 2019/2020 winter semester there were about 2.9 million students.

Here we present some key figures on Lower Saxony's largest university of applied sciences whose history dates back to the first half of the 20th century. For current figures on the university, please regularly refer to the "WIR in numbers (in German)" annual report.
