Goethe University

Since it was established in 1914, Goethe University has developed into one of the most famous universities in Germany. It was set up as a foundation university by Frankfurt citizens; a tradition that has been revived in the past few years with the establishment of numerous foundation professorships or prizes by companies, citizens and institutions from the city and region. The Frankfurt university foundation, supported by the association of friends and supporters of the university, offers various commitment options.

The university is closely associated in a variety of ways with the neighbouring (technical) universities in Darmstadt and Mainz and the scientific facilities of the region. As a leading place of research in the region, it sees it as both an obligation and a challenge to actively play a part in and for the development of the Rhine-Main metropolis region as one of the leading regions in the world. Through the close networking between academia and practice it contributes to the resolution of social, political, economic and cultural issues.

It offers 41,000 students a broad spectrum of subjects in 16 faculties in research and teachings. Within the framework of its courses, great importance is attached to the transfer of excellent methodical and specialist academic knowledge. Furthermore, students and graduates have access to a broad range of further education options that supplement their studies; the Career Centre at the University supports them when they enter the job market.

With forward-looking research focal points, the University is today already achieving top performance and has ensured itself a place among the top research universities in Germany. A host of interdisciplinary facilities and projects, special research areas, post-graduate courses and doctorate programmes help to underline the scientific profile of the University. The University library, with its extensive inventory and collections, is one of the central scientific libraries in the Federal Republic.

The University is located on four sites: Bockenheim campus (law, business, education and social sciences), Westend campus (cultural science and languages; theology), Riedberg campus (natural sciences), Niederrad (medicine, clinic). Within the scope of an extensive site reorganisation with an investment volume of EUR 600 million and in accordance with the wishes of the state government, the University is to become the ‘most modern university’ in Europe by 2014. The site it was founded on, Bockenheim, will then be relinquished.
