Approximately 10.000 students are trained at FhoeV NRW to become public servants, at the biggest of Germany`s around 30 universities of applied sciences for Public Administration.
All three-year bachelor programmes are “dual-track” programmes divided up into stages that cover theory and practice and dovetail with each other. Hands-on training ensures that recruits can be assigned to their first job immediately after graduating.
FHOEV NRW`s administrative head office is located in Gelsenkirchen in the heart of the “Ruhrgebiet” urban area. The college has de-centralised premises in Cologne, Duisburg, Gelsenkirchen, Dortmund, Hagen, Bielefeld, Mülheim and Muenster.
FHOEV NRW offers five degree courses in two faculties:
Roughly 60 % of the students are trained to be future policemen and –women in North Rhine-Westphalia.
The student`s future employment is situated in local communities (like the urban administration of the city of Cologne) or the regional government of North Rhine-Westphalia.
