Ludwig-Maxmilians-University

Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) is Munich’s largest institution of higher education and one of Germany’s internationally most renowned universities. With a very strong commitment to research, it has a long tradition stretching back to 1472. As a general university, the LMU offers a broad range of subjects from humanities and cultural studies to law, economics and social sciences to medicine and the natural sciences. These opportunities are currently being taken up by some 42,000 students, of whom 17% come from abroad; this makes the LMU one of the largest German universities. A total of 13 Nobel Prize laureates confirm its outstanding research. That is also the guiding principle of its institutional strategy "LMUexcellent Working Brains – Networking Minds – Living Knowledge". Research chairs and a centre for advanced studies focusing on cutting-edge interdisciplinary research represent just two opportunities for academic excellence.
