About SRH Fernhochschule – The Distance Learning University

I'm glad we met. The world is changing at a rapid pace. And we must keep up with it. But how?


What do I want for my future?

What will help me develop personally so that I can enjoy future success? These are the questions you ask yourself when planning to embark on a distance learning programme. From day one, we will help you to find answers to your questions.

Your personal SRH Fernhochschule – The Distance Learning University.

For over 25 years, we have been committed to helping our students achieve their goals. To accomplish this, we establish the best conditions for a successful symbiosis between life, work and studies. More than 180 employees guide 12,000 students and certificate participants on their individual educational path every year. We do not see ourselves as a provider of competencies alone, but also as a personal mentor, coach and motivator. With 70 state-recognised Bachelor’s and Master's degree programmes and more than 90 university certificates, we already have an answer today to what will be needed tomorrow – and above all – to what will be really needed in the future. As a quality leader in distance learning and part of the SRH group – a foundation with pioneering offers in the fields of education and healthcare – we are independent of the demands of the capital market or private investors. We invest our profits in sustainable solutions to improve people's lives.

A carbon-neutral university

SRH Fernhochschule – The Distance Learning University, voted Germany’s most popular distance learning university for the sixth consecutive year in 2024, is a carbon-neutral university. In this way, we assume responsibility within our sustainability strategy and make a social contribution to the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the goals of the Paris Agreement. Our university is one of the few carbon-neutral higher education institutions in Germany.

The advantages of our CORE Principle

Together with you, we will overcome the challenges of studying a programme designed for people in full-time employment or with other responsibilities. This allows you to study flexibly and independently in pursuit of your goal – knowing that we are always there to guide you.

Your choice: we find the ideal study programme for you.
We advise you personally and individually, thinking through the different options together, comparing programmes, and putting you in touch with alumni and current students. This enables you to take advantage of important insider input, making your choice easier.

Your individual study programme: we make it possible.
You pursue your studies in a way that suits you best. We create the best conditions for you to achieve your goal. One example is our e-Campus, which enables you to access your digital learning content whenever and wherever it suits you. We offer you the effective transfer of knowledge for every type of learner – online. You are also free to tailor aspects of your studies in a way that works for you, giving you flexibility with regard to your study duration, curriculum and examination dates. It also goes without saying that you are free to choose how you finance your studies.

Your companions: we are there for you whenever you need us.
At our university, you will not find yourself on hold with an anonymous call centre or standing around alone after you have signed the study contract. We attach great importance to giving you optimal support, which does not stop at the provision of advice alone: from day one of your course through to graduation, you will have your very own couple of experts at your side to answer any technical or organisational questions you may have. We will give you advice and targeted assistance if you encounter any difficulties. In other words, you can rely fully on our support services.

Your future: preparing you is our goal.

Motivation requires an eye to the future. That is what you will get from our high-quality, internationally recognised degree programmes, which offer excellent opportunities for the future. You will not find any flash-in-the-pan trends here – we prefer to look further ahead. Which is why we prepare you comprehensively for your future career, by combining research and teaching into a well-balanced mix of theory and practice. Your advantage: you can seamlessly integrate your newly acquired skills into your everyday working environment.

Our mission: we take responsibility for people and the environment. We embrace fairness, respect and sustainability in our daily contacts with people and in our use of resources. Our university has always fostered an inclusive culture and promoted diversity in all respects. But we do not only focus on your personal future – we are currently developing our Sustainability Strategy, and were designated a “Carbon-Neutral University” in June 2021.

From day one, we will help you to find answers to your questions. To do this, we want to get to know you, understand your life situation, and find out what motivates you.
Prof. Dr. Ottmar Schneck, Rector of the SRH Fernhochschule

Let us begin.

What do you expect from us? What do you want to achieve? What is your current situation? These are key questions, given that we want to tailor our study options to your life – and not the other way around. As future students, your wishes, opportunities and goals take centre stage. With this in mind, we utilise our professors’ high level of expertise and our many years of experience as the German quality leader in distance learning.

Your dreams are what motivate us. Which is why we have developed a distance learning model for Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes, as well as university certificates, offering you maximum flexibility – and the guarantee of an excellent individual service. In this way, we are able to provide the best possible support and guidance to each and every one of our students.
