THE CITY OF REGENSBURG AND ITS UNIVERSITY

Daecherblick 2 Stadt Regensburg Bilddokumentation-kleinThe attractiveness of the university is enhanced by the appeal of the city itself, with its ever-present traces of more than 2,000 years of history. Since July 2006, Regensburg carries the UNESCO distinction “World Heritage”, which recognizes the unique character of the medieval city centre and its magnificent
architecture - above all the Old Stone Bridge above the Danube and St. Peter’s Cathedral.

In recent years Regensburg has witnessed a renaissance due partly to the founding of the university and its subsequent broadening of the academic community and partly to the settling of many modern industrial and technological ventures.

Today Regensburg is experiencing an increase in prosperity, with one of the highest productivity rates in all of Germany and a steady growth in population.

The University of Regensburg, founded in 1962, is located on a modern campus at the southern edge of a historic city dating back to the Middle Ages. With its eleven faculties, the university offers a wide variety of programmes of study.
The university’s current student population is around 18,500 with about 1,400 international students.
