University of Applied Sciences for Intercultural Theology

A word on Corona

Fortunately, the numbers of new infections and the spread of the Covid-19 virus in Germany and also in Lower Saxony are declining, so that many measures that became necessary in recent months due to corona infection have now been lifted or eased. However, the risk of infection with the Covid-19 virus still exists, so that caution and appropriate behaviour are still required.

In your own interest, in the interest of the entire university community and in the interest of all our fellow human beings the following still applies: Eeach and every one of you can and should counteract the spread of the Vovid-19 virus by acting responsibly (e.g. hygiene care and "SOCIAL DISTANCE" by strict physical distance in combination with social contact via telephone or internet - even if this involves restrictions.) Therefore, please read and observe the notes and recommendations on the following link, inform yourself daily about the current situation and act accordingly. Many thanks!

Welcome to FIT

The University of Applied Sciences for Intercultural Theology (FIT) is specializing in the fields of intercultural theology, diaconia and ecumenical cooperation in a global context. Students acquire in praxis-oriented teaching and research the essential intercultural, theological and social diaconal qualifications to deal with the everchanging challenges being faced in the wake of globalization.

The FIT is also an exceptional place of intercultural and interreligious encounter: Students from Germany and all over the world live and learn together and share with one another their diverse theological and cultural backgrounds.

In particular our students perceive the internationality and interculturality on campus, combined with the special range of courses offered at our university of applied sciences, as unique and horizon widening.

At FIT students do not only learn about Intercultural Theology in the lectures, but they live it every day in the community.

Let yourself be inspired by this diversity!
