About the MSH Medical School Hamburg

Our University - Studying with a view

The MSH Medical School Hamburg - University of Applied Sciences and Medical University is a private, state-approved university based in the Hamburg HafenCity. It was founded in 2009 by the Managing Director Ilona Renken-Olthoff. Numerous Bachelor and Master courses have since been successfully accredited or re-accredited and guarantee the highest level of quality and transparency. The MSH Medical School Hamburg has successfully completed the institutional accreditation procedure by the German Science Council. In 2019, the MSH Medical School Hamburg also received state recognition from the Authority for Science, Research and Equality of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg for the training of medical doctors at university level and has since offered the state examination degree in human medicine.

What is special about the MSH Medical School Hamburg is that it combines a technical college and a university with its four faculties. The Faculty of Health Sciences and the Faculty of Art, Health and Social Science are characterized by a strongly application-oriented approach in its teaching, research and evidence-based further training and have the status of a University of Applied Sciences. The Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Life Sciences, on the other hand, have the status of a public university and are equivalent to a university. Our work at MSH Medical School Hamburg is characterised by interdisciplinary, professional and complex thinking, innovation and quality as well as a strong focus on motivation and talent. In all our faculties, we value and promote an interdisciplinary cooperation with the intention to continue to grow further and together.

Exclusive Ambience and Maritime Flair

MSH Medical School Hamburg offers a unique learning atmosphere with both the campus located in the centre of the modern HafenCity and the "Arts and Social Change" campus at Harburg's inland port. Our campus in HafenCity, with view of the popular Marco Polo Terraces, the Elbe river, the Hamburg harbour, the Fleet and the Speicherstadt features exclusivity and maritime flair. The latest technology, modern interior design and a diverse university life make a very special all-rounder package. The "Arts and Social Change" campus is located in a former soap factory at Harburg's inland port. This is where industrial charm meets modern design. Architecture steeped in history merges with a cozy atmosphere and creates ideal study and working conditions. Students appreciate the charming industrial ambience and the lavish space of large studios and lecture. With the Faculty of Arts, Health and Social Sciences, this is our place for Bachelor's and Master's degree programs, that explore the current evidence of promoting, supporting and accompanying people within social systems.
