The Ansbach University of Applied Sciences ( _de. Fachhochschule Ansbach) was founded in 1996 and counts approximately 1,800 students (2008). It belongs to the newest Universities of Applied Sciences of the Free State of Bavaria. The percentage of foreign students is about 6 percent. The number of students is expected to increase up to 2,350 students in 2012 since three more fields of study will be established during the next years.

Beginning with the winter semester 2006/07 the so called Bologna Process was implemented. Therefore all academic programs with the German degree “Diplom (FH)” were replaced by bachelor programs.

In January 2008 the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences came to first place of the “Hochschulranking” (English: University Ranking) which was processed by UNIcheck.de. Despite the fact that the survey cannot be considered as representative it is still a honour for the young and dynamic university.

History

At the location were soldiers were recruited and educated for over 250 years the Free State of Bavaria founded an University of Applied Sciences in the heart of Ansbach in 1996.

In the 18th century a barrack was built by the margraves master builder. Around the turn of the century in 1900 the barrack has been replaced by the Hindenburg-Barrack, the todays red-brick building. At first this buildings were used by the german Reichswehr and Wehrmacht until the end of WWII in 1945. The US-Army used it for almost a half century until 1992 when the US-Administration gave it to the Free State of Bavaria.

The Free State of Bavaria invested over 50 milion Euro in renovating the buildings and made it ready for academic activity. Now after 10 years it is a modern University with excellence equipment. Furthermore all the buildings are renovated disabled-friendly.
