Schools meet HKA

A warm welcome to visitors!

As their final exams come closer, many students are faced with the question of what to do after leaving school. Perhaps a degree in an engineering or business subject would be a good idea? But what exactly is it all about and is it the right thing for me? HKA offers several programs in which students can experience the university and its structures in exciting hands-on projects while they are still at school.

On this page, we have compiled our "Schools meet HKA" offers: Visit us with a school class and get an up-close look at everyday life at a university. Students can form an idea of what to expect at the university. Transition from school to university is guaranteed to be smooth and successful.
