Study in the USA

The USA is a strategic focus for HAW Hamburg. Through the programme 'HAW goes USA', we make it possible for qualified students to spend a semester at one of our 11 US partner universities without having to pay tuition fees. In addition, engineering students can study in the USA through the Global E3 network. You can find additional information about the individual universities and the answers to the most frequently asked questions below.
