German Higher Education Bridge (GHEB) is the North American liaison office of Hochschule Fresenius University of Applied Sciences, Germany’s largest private university with campuses in Cologne, Dusseldorf, Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt, Heidelberg, Wiesbaden and Idstein.

In New York City, Fresenius University of Applied Sciences opened the first German study-center in the United States. It serves as a base for our students who are studying at our partner institutions – Berkeley College and Pace University – as part of their integrated semester abroad as well as supports our summer school and independent short-term undergraduate/graduate workshops, internships and research.

Since the opening of the center in April 2016, we have welcomed over 300 students per year. Our close proximity to the New York Public Library on 5th Avenue as well as Grand Central Terminal makes this an excellent place to study. Our experienced team both in Germany and in the United States assists students completing one of many options available to them.

The German Higher Education Bridge office maintains collaborative relationships with our two partner universities and is working to establish a North American collaborative network that will enable students to undertake other research / internship opportunities.

Ms. Priya S. Nayar, Director  serves as the lead for program development and implementation in the region.
