On which German university campus can you spend your lecture breaks under palm trees? At the smallest campus of Kaiserslautern University of Applied Sciences, in Pirmasens, with about 700 students, this is possible. The atrium with subtropical vegetation, modern buildings with the best equipment and well-kept outdoor facilities make Pirmasens a winning place to study.
Unique study programs such as Applied Pharmacy, Chemical and Pharmaceutical Logistics, Plastics, Leather and Textile Technology or the English-language Master's program in Product Refinement attract students from far outside the region. A family atmosphere, personal contact with the lecturers, excellent facilities and low living costs create the best conditions for studying.
Pirmasens, a city of 40,000 inhabitants, is located in the middle of the Palatinate Wasgau, one of the most impressive red sandstone landscapes in Germany and a paradise for mountain bikers, geocachers and climbers. The traditional shoe town with the oldest shoe factory in Europe is also an Eldorado for shoe fans with outlet shopping.
