University of Freiburg

“Trinational, European, Global”: This is the motto of the University of Freiburg. All people at the University of Freiburg: researchers, students, employees, administrative and technical staff have made the University of Freiburg one of the most innovative, high-performance universities in Germany and are therefore at the heart of the University’s strategy for the future. Already a comprehensive university at its founding in 1457, the University of Freiburg still offers undergraduate and graduate studies as well as professorial qualification in all important disciplines today: the humanities, natural and engineering sciences, medicine, law, and theology. This diversity also provides an ideal environment for innovative interdisciplinary studies. Famous philosophers, top researchers, and Nobel laureates have taught and researched at the University of Freiburg. The university’s top positions in different rankings testify to its position as one of the leading universities. More than 25,000 students from over 100 nations are matriculated in 180 degree programs at 11 faculties. More than 7,000 professors, lecturers and employees put in their effort every day – and experience that family friendliness, equal opportunity, and environmental protection are more than just empty phrases here. Former students as well as benefactors and sponsors intensify a culture of dynamic exchange with the city, the region, and the international scientific community. All of these groups work to give our university the vitality that will continue to provide fertile ground for outstanding achievements in the future.
