“The difference between FH and TH  is the kind of students that are allowed to study there. The Fachhochschule is mainly for Students without Abitur. You need either a completed Ausbildung (certificate of apprenticeship) and a year in a special secondary school (Fachoberschule) or 12 years school (Gymnasium or Realschule+Fachoberschule) + 1 year work experience(Praktikum). With Abitur (general qualification for university entrance) you are allowed to study both at Hochschule and at Fachhochschule, in lack of work experience in your chosen study field you have to prove a 3-month Praktikum. The requirements depend on what and where you are studying.
I studied at Fachhochschule because it is more practical orientated than TH.

– So, are degrees from a Fachhochschule respectable?
– Yes, they are.
– In Germany there are many jobs for graduates of both (TH and FH). In working life the payment for graduates from the Fachhochschule is mostly lower in the beginning, the rest depends on your career. And sometimes only a university degree (Hochschulabschluss) is required as a qualification.”- said Zomina, a FH student. [1]

##
TH: “Technische Hochschule (acronym TH) is what an Institute of Technology (i.e. a university focusing on engineering sciences) used to be called in German-speaking countries, before most of them changed their name to Technische Universität (German) (acronym: TU) in the 1970s (in Germany).”[4] Most famous arehttp://www.tu9.de/en/index.php and TU9 member universitites are excellent in research.

Example: RWTH Aachen, TU Munich, TU Darmstadt etc.

FH: “It differs from the traditional university (Universität) mainly through its more application or practical orientation and less research. Fachhochschulen do not award doctoral degrees themselves. The Fachhochschule students’ up-to-date knowledge of the field enhances their preparation for their profession.”‘[3]

Example: FH Aachen, FH Munich, FH Darmstadt etc.

##Difference between Fachhochschule and TH/Universität :

Fachhochschulen[FH]- Univ. of applied sciences:

• fixed timetable
• relatively small classes, praxis oriented
• most lecturers come from private sector
• compulsory attendance
• good equipment
• entrance examination

TH(TU) and Universitäten:

• no fixed timetable
• classes can be chosen freely (relatively, according to field of study)
• lectures in front of a large audience
• compulsory attendance only in some exercise curses
• no entrance examinations (depending on Universität and field of study)

and it’s not true that you can only get titles like mag. and dr. after you graduated from university.
Mag. and dr. are completely different titles for different purposes. Mag is equal to a masters degree and dr, well, dr is equal to a Ph.D.
Though, every university is bound to adopt the bac/master system (because of a EU directive)

I wouldn’t go as far as to say that university is better than a Fachhochschule – it really depends on what you want to study.

##So the bottom line is, if your plan is to go for PhD, look for a relevant degree in any Technical University. I can’t believe you can’t find any relevant degree in any Technical University in Germany. They might be slightly different but you would at the be in the same field you wanted to be.

If you are not able to find a your favourite course in a Technical University, FH is no bad option either. You can do PhD later. Also FH are NOT considered as inferior institutions in any way. They are just designed for a different goal. I have heard that typically a Diplom holding German FH graduate has better chances of getting a job in German industry than anyone else because they have the best training for the job during their studies.
