The University of Hildesheim is a public higher education institution in Germany. The institution was founded in 1946 as the Teachers Training College in the Free State of Saxony. In 1978, a part of the college became independent and was granted university status, paving the way for the initial establishment of the University of Hildesheim we know today. However, it was not until 1989 when the institution was granted full university status.

In 2003, the institution was officially named the University of Hildesheim Foundation. And, since then, it has been recognized as a foundation under public law. What this means is that the institution has full autonomy to, besides other things, approve its own construction projects and award professorships. As a public foundation, the University of Hildesheim has maintained a tightly-knit relationship with the local civil society. In addition, to better the quality of education it delivers, it has established a solid network of affiliations with scientific, educational, and cultural institutions.

The university has grown tremendously and today it has three campuses. These include the main campus, the Bühler Campus, and the Marienburg Culture Campus. The campuses serve as homes to the university’s four faculties: Educational and Social Science; Linguistics and Information Sciences; Cultural Studies and Aesthetic Communication; and Mathematics, Natural Sciences, Economics, and Computer Science. To make education accessible to all, the university has its own scholarship programs aimed at supporting socially-committed and specially-capable students.

The faculties help the University of Hildesheim deliver quality education in an area that it is best known for—educational studies programs. Some of the well-designed programs the university is popular for include: Childhood Education, Psychology, Translation Studies, Diversity Education, Business Information/Computer Science, Intercultural Communication, and Environmental Studies.

As of 2019, the University of Hildesheim had more than 8,000 students enrolled in various courses, 73% of whom are female students. Besides, the faculty comprises 43% women, which exemplifies the university’s drive for equality and equal treatment for all including those from different ethnic, social, and religious backgrounds.

The University of Hildesheim encourages students to be active partners in the learning process and to be involved in the improvement and development of the programs of study. Through this initiative, the university has managed to create programs that students are satisfied with. In fact, regular course evaluations at the institution reveal that the majority of the students are either “very satisfied” or “mostly satisfied” with their courses.
