Hochschule Reutlingen Overview

Reutlingen University is one of Germany’s leading universities, offering international academic programmes with close ties to industry and commerce. On its campus there are around 5800 students spread across five different Schools: Applied Chemistry, Engineering, ESB Business School, Informatics, and Textiles & Design.

Located in Reutlingen’s suburb of Hohbuch at the edge of town near to the green countryside but still very close to the action: Stuttgart, Tübingen and the hills of the Swabian  Alb are all within easy reach. 

For many years Reutlingen University has regularly been placed at or near the top of the national academic league tables. Moreover, surveys undertaken among corporate HR managers confirm the excellent quality of our graduates, reinforcing programmes which are offered.

Swansea University currently has agreements in place with Reutlingen University for the School of Management (Business) and the College of Arts and Humanities (German).

Erasmus+ Grant - 300 - 450€ approx

The Erasmus+ Grant is dependent on location, and varies in each country.

Students can receive grants of up to 350 euros per month for study, or up to 450 euros per month for student traineeships, depending on the country they go to. This grant is a contribution to the extra costs of studying abroad, which is why it varies by country.
