Study at Ulm University
Your future. Your choice. Your university.
A green campus, several first places in university rankings, numerous research prizes and dedicated lecturers – that's Ulm University in a nutshell. What we value the most, however, is to provide a professional environment with a human touch. Students are able to find their way around quickly and receive substantial support right from the beginning. An active and lively exchange between students and professors is not only desirable but quite common here.

Research + links to industry and economy
Keen on getting a taste of research as soon as possible? Our interdisciplinary projects provide exciting insights!
We are fortunate to have numerous renowned companies close by in the Science City. For example, driveU is a cooperation between the Daimler Research Centre and Ulm University focused on research and development of autonomic driving ('driving a car without a driver'). The results of such collaborations frequently enrich our teaching.
Graduates coming from Ulm University are fit for the job market! Interdisciplinary research and practical exercises together with presentations from economy and industry prepare our students for their careers.
The University created its own Cooperation Award to promote outstanding collaborations between students or researchers from Ulm University and partners from the economy.
Semester abroad? Why not! Our exchange programmes offer various opportunities to meet people from different cultures and improve your language and intercultural skills. It is well worth your time to go abroad and expand your horizon, both on a personal and professional level.
The many international students on our campus also create an international flair. The International Office is here to support both incoming and outgoing students. The International Office offers international prospective students who wish to apply for a German-taught study programme at Ulm University, a preparatory course.
Ulm - the feel-good city
Studying and researching is well and good. But Albert Einstein's birthplace also has a lot to offer to keep you entertained in your spare time. Ulm is a great place to 'paint the town red' and have a good time. There aren't many cities that offer such an abundance of cafés, pubs and restaurants. Events like the Ulmer Zelt (summer concert & comedy series), Nabada (carnival on the river) or the International Donaufest (food, craftworks & music) will get you on your feet and out and about in this medieval city with its quaint alleys and lush green parks.
This relatively small city scores also with numerous world-renowned companies (e.g. ratiopharm, EvoBus, Seeberger or Liebherr), another factor that attracts people from all over the world.
