The Rhine Waal University has been in existence since the 1st May 2009, and is an innovative, interdisciplinary and highly modern international university, with Kleve as the main seat of learning and Kamp-Lintfort as a second location. In Kleve, until we can move to the new buildings being built at present alongside the Spoy Canal, you can study as an interim solution in our buildings in Landwehr Straße, or in Emmerich at the former Army Barracks. The Kamp-Lintfort location in Südstraße is also an interim solution, where courses are taking place until moving into their own new buildings in the centre of the city. From 2013, a total of 5000 students from Germany and abroad will be able to enjoy both academic sites whilst completing attractive courses in an open, friendly and personal atmosphere. Our teachers, professors and staff and the pleasant environment of our university also contribute significantly to making our students feel really at home. The subjects covered by our courses are scientific and application-oriented, of the highest standards and of high practical relevance, both in instruction and research. We offer degree programmes in natural, economic and engineering sciences, as well as subjects oriented toward the social and health sciences. On 21 September 2009 we commenced with the winter semester 2009 / 2010 offering our first three Bachelor degree programmes: BioScience and Health, B.Sc., Faculty of Life Sciences in Kleve International Business and Social Sciences, B.A., Faculty of Society and Economics in Kleve E-Government, B.Sc., Faculty of Communications and Environment in Kamp-Lintfort In the four Faculties – “Technology and Bionics” (Emmerich), “Life Sciences” (Kleve), “Society and Economics” and "Technology and Bionics" (Emmerich) and “Communications and Environment” in Kamp-Lintfort – a total of 16 courses have been available at Rhine Waal University since the winter semester 2010 / 2011, 70 percent of which are taught in English. And these numbers are growing each year. Read less
