Study in the Regional Capital

During the past several years, the capital of Potsdam has developed into an internationally renowned centre of academia and science. Since 2009, the College for Sport and Management Potsdam (FHSMP), supported by the Landessportbundes Brandenburg (LSB), has enriched Potsdam's university scene with its range of courses and programmes. The FHSMP is based in the Kongresshotel Potsdam, idyllically located on the shore of Templiner See (Templin Lake). 

With the development of the athletic complex Luftschiffhafen as a centre of competitive sports, the capital of Potsdam has further established its reputation as a city of sports. The MBS Arena, indoor swimming pools, Haus der Athleten (the House of Athletes) and rowing stronghold – many Olympic careers have had their beginnings in Potsdam. Our College for Sport and Management is also located in close proximity to Olympiastützpunkt Brandenburg; a cooperation with Olympiastützpunkt allows our students to also use their sport and training facilities. This provides competitive athletes the opportunity to continue their training while attending classes in Potsdam! In addition, our modern equipped seminar rooms offer optimal conditions for learning and teaching. 


The historical downtown, with its numerous restaurants and bars, offers an opportunity to relax after a long day of studying, while parks and lakes offer an endless selection of various leisure activities. Music and theatre fans as well as dance enthusiasts will also find something for every taste.

The college is well-connected with Potsdam and Berlin's public transportation networks.
