Potsdam, your next study destination

As a student at GISMA University of Applied Sciences, you will be based at our flagship Potsdam Campus. This ultra high tech campus is home to all of our University of Applied Sciences students, either in person or virtually. Our classrooms feature the hyflex system, meaning regardless of where our students are in the world, they connect in real-time and benefit from seamless peer-to-peer learning. The campus is in great company, with neighbours such as SAP right across the road.

Potsdam is the picturesque capital city of the state of Brandenburg. It is known for technological innovation, economic growth, a unique culture, and a high standard of living. It is a world heritage site, with the backdrop of outstanding nature. The city also benefits from being the twin city of Berlin, the German capital. The two cities share a border, and the journey from Potsdam Main Station takes just 20-30 minutes to be in the centre of Berlin, where you can find an extensive cultural, retail, and nightlife scene.
