Katholische Stiftungshochschule München / GERMANY


The Katholische Stiftungshochschule München (KSH München)

The Katholische Stiftungshochschule München (KSH München) is a University of Applied Sciences and a nationally and internationally highly respected and specialised university for social, nursing, healthcare and pedagogical professions. The university is state-approved and in church sponsorship.

The KSH München utilises its specific expertise to engage in academic discourse and university policy on behalf of the state. The special focus of its degree programmes is derived from the Catholic Church's diaconal and social mission, which represents one of the key church tasks as a ‘service of humanity'. In the course of this, teaching is based on a Christian view of humanity. The university has two campus locations: one in Munich's city centre in the district of Haidhausen (where the ECSWR 2025 will take place), and one in the baroque monastery Benediktbeuern, which was built over 1,250 years ago in the Bavarian foothills of the Alps by the Benedictines, and today is run by the order of the Salesians of Don Bosco.

As a university of applied sciences, the KSH Münhen has been working on projects in research and teaching for many decades, with relevant practical partners in social and healthcare services (charitable organisations, public agencies, hospitals, etc.). It thus ensures that its students receive the maximum possible connection with real life practice.
