University Study in Bayreuth

For those planning to study after school, the University of Bayreuth and the nearby colleges in Hof and Coburg offer the best study opportunities.

The University of Bayreuth is one of the youngest universities in Germany. The very much research-oriented university has developed most dynamically since its founding in 1975. Good supervision, high academic standards, interdisciplinary cooperation and scientific excellence regularly secure the university top places in the rankings for tertiary institutions. In so doing, it stands out particularly for its interdisciplinary research and close cooperation with business and industry.

At the moment about 13,500 young people are studying here. Meanwhile, almost every second student comes from a federal state other than Bavaria, or from abroad. In contrast to many other countries, studying in Germany is free, with no university charges applying to undergraduate degrees at most public tertiary institutions.

Foreign students and scientists studying, teaching and researching at the University of Bayreuth, are well-supported by the University’s International Office.
Upon graduating, many students find employment in one of our regional firms, or go into business here with their own entrepreneurial ideas.
