What to expect

Our campus is located in the Science City outside the city centre of Ulm.  The University of Ulm is the youngest public university in the state of Baden-Württemberg and only about 50 years old, but ranked best young university in Germany in 2017! In contrast, the city of Ulm is much older, founded around the year 850.  The city of Ulm is famous for its gothic minster with the world's tallest steeple (161.53 m) and it is the birthplace of Nobel Prize winner Albert Einstein. Ulm is situated on the banks of the river Danube, which marks the border between Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. With approximately 120,000 inhabitants, Ulm is a city of short distances, but a multitude of cultural offers. It is an excellent and stimulating place to conduct your graduate or post-graduate studies!
