University of Würzburg

Julius-Maximilians University of Würzburg is one of the leading institutions of higher education in Germany. On an international level, the University of Würzburg ranks in the top bracket of academic institutions in many scientific disciplines including biology, medicine, physics, and psychology.

Home to over 28,000 students, the University of Würzburg is one of the largest and most established universities in Germany and is committed to advancing research in fields that are relevant for the future. The University of Würzburg is large enough to offer a broad and innovative range of subjects, yet not too big to be impersonal. A university with an international reputation for excellent research, the University of Würzburg is proud to be the home of outstanding researchers and fourteen Nobel Prize Laureates. But, we are not only committed to delivering quality research, we are also committed to delivering quality teaching.

The idyllic city of Würzburg, located along the Main River and surrounded by vineyards, charms its 150,000 residents – 40,000 of those being students - with a mild and sunny climate. Würzburg has a young and international flair that offers students a culturally diverse array of extracurricular events and a lively nightlife. The surrounding areas of Würzburg are considered a bike rider’s dream, and going for a summer swim in the river is a must. Excellent connections to Munich, Frankfurt, and Berlin’s international airports make travel a breeze.

Students love that the cost of living in Würzburg is very reasonable. The city is big enough to offer everything they may need, and yet compact enough to reach everything by bike. Parents appreciate that the city has one of the lowest crime rates in Germany. Bavaria is Germany’s economically strongest state and home base to many international companies. We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Würzburg!
