Hochschule Fresenius is a place where tradition meets innovation, teaching meets research, and theory meets practice. But above all, it is a place where people come together – students, lecturers, professors, and more – each with their own experiences, viewpoints, mindsets, and behaviors. As a private university of applied sciences, we want to give them all the space and freedom to evolve, grow and pursue their goals. In short, we want to be a GREAT PLACE TO GROW.

Hochschule Fresenius began life as the “Chemisches Laboratorium Fresenius” (Fresenius Chemical Laboratory) in 1848 and has evolved into a privately owned German university with a long educational history. It is the oldest educational institution of its type in the field of chemistry. It combines teaching, research, and practical experience exactly as envisaged by its founder, Carl Remigius Fresenius.
