Welcome to the EFH
We are delighted that you have shown an interest in our university. The EFH RWL is a university whose departments all focus and reflect on the problems encountered in the social and healthcare services, the diaconate, and church-based educational work. The EFH has a clear protestant profile. Yet at the same time it promotes cultural diversity. Its high degree of specialisation and its communicative working atmosphere are characteristics of our university.
Bochum, historically known as the European centre for coal mining and steel production, is today an established location of education, science, health care management and new technology. Situated in the heart of the Ruhr Area, our city has embraced the challenge of change and has set the course for future development.
