Freiburg University

In the heart of the city of Freiburg and not far from Switzerland and France you will find one of Germany’s oldest universities: Albert-Ludwigs-Universität. Founded in 1457 with courses in theology, medicine, law and philosophy, it now has 11 departments. Some 20,000 students – including approx. 3,600 international undergraduates – are registered here. Universität Freiburg has long seen itself as an interface between the natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities. The university has big plans for the money from the Initiative for Excellence. For example, foreign and German researchers at the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS) are to strengthen the universities international position in four departments. Researchers are also to receive rapid assistance from the Science Support Center, which will bring together all the departments responsible for third-party funds.
