Description

The University of Hohenheim is the oldest university in the city of Stuttgart, Germany. It was founded in 1818, after the city had been racked by a devastating famine. The university’s original purpose was to teach agricultural techniques and experiment with more efficient farming techniques, to prevent such a disaster ever happening again.

There are three faculties at the university: Agricultural Sciences, Natural Sciences and Business, Economics and Social Sciences. They offer Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD programmes.

International cooperation takes high priority at the university. Degrees are offered in English and students are encouraged to take part in study abroad schemes. The university has exchange agreements with institutions around the world, including universities in the United States, Australia and Singapore.

The campus is based in a palace, the former residence of Duke Carl Eugen von Württemberg. Duke von Württemberg constructed the palace and its surrounding gardens in the 1700s. Today, the well-maintained grounds are where Hohenheim students take classes.

With its gardens and green spaces home to over 400 different plant species, Hohenheim’s campus is easy and pleasant to get around by foot. 

Three museums are located on the Hohenheim campus. The German Agricultural Museum looks at the country’s history of farming. The History of Hohenheim Museum houses collections related to the town, palace and the university itself. The Zoology and Veterinary Museum has several biological and medical curiosities.
