The beginnings of teacher training in Karlsruhe go back as far as 1757 though the University of Education in its present form was established in 1962. With an enrollment of over 3,000 students taught by 180 faculty members, the university’s focus is on the quality of educational processes, teaching and learning in different subject areas and contexts, as well as general issues of capacity building. The university combines a solid basic education for teachers of various grades with basic skills for people who want to be active in other areas of education as well as professional training and service offerings that are combined with research and development at a high level.
Karlsruhe is a liberal and pleasant green city in southwest Germany, at the edge of the Black Forest on the Rhine River and near the French border. It has about 300,000 inhabitants and is the seat of important federal government institutions. From the Palace Gardens to the many cinemas, from the theatres and museums to the lively pub scene, Karlsruhe offers a wide range of cultural and leisure activities for its residents and visitors.
Like most German universities, Karlsruhe University of Education does not own its own halls of residence, but they do provide exchange students with assistance in finding accommodation in Karlsruhe.
Housing costs will not be billed through Appalachian State due to the varied options. Students will submit their housing payment directly to Karlsruhe or their housing provider.
