Our commitment to quality

Accredited by the Berlin Senate

SRH Campus Hamburg is part of the SRH Berlin University of Applied Sciences, a university accredited by the Berlin Senate. As such, our study programmes and degrees (Bachelor’s degrees, Master’s degrees, MBA's) are equal to those of state universities.

Accredited by the Science Council

The university has been institutionally accredited by the Science Council since July 2009. The original reaccreditation has since been extended from 5 to 10 years (until 2025), which validates our high-quality standards in teaching and research.

In its statement, the Science Council particularly praised the distinct international approach of the university, the number and quality of cooperation partners and the special achievements in research at the SRH Berlin University of Applied Sciences. By granting accreditation, the Science Council ensures that recognised benchmarks in research and teaching standards are met.

System Accreditation: A Seal of Quality

In 2019, the SRH Berlin University of Applied Sciences, the SRH University of Applied Sciences Heidelberg and the SRH Fernhochschule – The Mobile University all received the quality seal of system accreditation from the Accreditation Council. The Accreditation Council certifies that the three universities' internal quality management meets the requirements for an independent accreditation of study programmes, meaning that all three SRH universities can independently ensure the quality of their study programmes.

Award for our teaching and learning model CORE

In 2018, the Stifterverband für die deutsche Wissenschaft and the VolkswagenStiftung honoured the CORE teaching and learning model with the Genius Loci Award, the only institutional award for teaching excellence in Germany.

With the CORE Principle (Competence Oriented Research and Education), SRH 2012 created a unique teaching and learning model based on scientific findings from learning and brain research: students work on a topic for five weeks – independently and in small groups, coached by lecturers. At the end of this period, they are tested to see whether they can apply the skills they have learned: for example, in the form of fictitious company meetings, presentations or exhibition concepts.

For our students at all locations, this seal of approval is an important signal, because they can be sure that they will receive an up-to-date, practice-oriented and methodically tested study programme.
