Welcome to the German Sport University Cologne!

Quality Education and International Research – that’s what the German Sport University Cologne stands for. Germany’s only sport university offers modern bachelor and master programmes as well as teacher training degrees (bachelor).

The University is recognized internationally for its research: the Faculty of Biochemistry’s renowned testing laboratory has been a part of the international fight against doping, experiments conducted at the Faculty of Physiology and Anatomy have soared with the astronauts into space, and the Research Centre for Performance Sport has brought together the combined efforts of multiple departments to coach and supervise elite athletes.

The 21 faculties at the German Sport University Cologne – from education and humanities to social sciences and biomedicine – offer a diverse array of teaching and research opportunities to the university’s some 5,300 students from more than 60 countries. The campus, located directly across from the Muengersdorf Sport Park, provides students and staff alike a first-class environment for learning, working, and living.
