Guest auditor

I would like to become a guest student - What do I have to do?

The Nordhausen University of Applied Sciences offers interested citizens of the Nordhausen region the opportunity to seek inspiration for extra- or part-time activities, to not let their own life experiences and knowledge lie fallow, and to seek contact with teaching and research. With the guest auditor offer, you can further your education in individual fields of knowledge without striving for a formal degree.

There are no restrictions on participation in terms of age, a specific degree or professional status. Anyone who wants to engage in challenging intellectual activity is welcome.

Course selection may be based on personal interests. Admission does not entitle the student to take examinations. In consultation with the lecturers, a certificate of attendance can be issued.

Admission to the corresponding courses takes place in consultation with the deans of studies within the framework of the available study opportunities. Participation in courses within the scope of laboratory practicals remains excluded.



According to § 6 of the HSN fee schedule, guest auditor fees apply:
