Equal Opportunities

Welcome to the equal opportunities page

Offenburg University of Applied Sciences is committed to gender equality and the equal representation of men and women at all levels of the organization. We are dedicated to creating and fostering an environment free of prejudices and discrimination.

The University’s equal opportunities officers are there to inform you about the various support measures, scholarships, events, and other offerings that are aimed at the promotion of gender equality and better compatibility of education/career and family life.

Please do contact us with any questions or suggestions you may have.

We support female students and young researchers through a variety of programs and scholarships and keep them informed about current developments and events of interest. We are also taking initiative to attract more young people, especially women, to study and career paths in the fields of science, technology and engineering.

Offenburg University is committed to assisting its employees, researchers and students in maintaining a balance between work/study and family life. We offer a number of support measures intended to make the University an attractive place to work and study for those with family responsibilities. In 2009 Offenburg University was certified as a family-friendly university by the "audit familiengerechte hochschule."
