Katholische Stiftungshochschule München (KSH) is a nationally and internationally renowned university for social, care and pedagogic professions, funded by the Catholic Church. The University offers bachelor courses in Social Work, Nursing Management, Nursing Education, Nursing (Dual Course), Early Childhood Education and in Religious Pedagogy and Church Educational Work. The University’s 2,500 students can also choose a number of master’s courses and continuing education courses.

KSH has two campus locations, one in the in the city-centre of Munich and one in the Baroque monastery of Benediktbeuern. The monastery was built by the Benedictines 1,250 years ago and today is administrated by the order of the Salesians of Don Bosco.

Students particularly benefit from the academic excellence and personal atmosphere at KSH. The University offers professional and dedicated supervision, allowing students to exchange ideas directly with professors and teaching staff.

The approach to teaching and learning is academic but also practical. As a University of Applied Sciences, KSH has maintained close links and co-operations with institutions such as charities, public providers and clinics in the areas of Social and Health Care for many decades. These connections ensure the most practical application of courses for students.

The “Institute for Continuing Education, Research and Development“(IF) is an affiliated institution of the University. It offers a portfolio of academic courses for professional development and continuing education, master’s degrees and an established research unit.

The outlook at KSH is very international. Lecturers also teach at European partner universities. These international experiences and ideas gained abroad directly inspire the teaching at KSH.
