Excellent teaching


We are committed to offering our students excellent opportunities for academic qualification. At the KU, learning and teaching are closely connected to research and the advancement of scientific knowledge. However, studying at the KU goes far beyond simply acquiring knowledge, for it is only in the process of personal development that students can truly unfold their potential to the fullest. This is why we attach particular importance to imparting social skills and advancing our students’ sense and value orientation in addition to providing them with a high level of academic and methodical qualification. The KU provides an ideal framework for this by offering an excellent staff-to-student ratio. At our University, every student with his or her individual characteristics and talents is seen and supported.
