Quick profile*

The research programmes and courses of study offered by the young University of Bayreuth range from natural and engineering sciences, law and economics to linguistic, literary and cultural studies, and are constantly being further developed.

The University of Bayreuth's national and international reputation in research and teaching is regularly confirmed by its placings in the relevant rankings, its student numbers, which have risen steadily since its founding, its ongoing success in obtaining third-party funding and its academic awards.

The University of Bayreuth is proud of its family atmosphere and the creativity of all its members who make the campus an attractive place to live, even outside of study and work. That is why particular importance is placed on strengthening entrepreneurial spirit, fostering spin-offs and cooperating closely with regional business, which has many a hidden champion to offer. The University of Bayreuth is the largest employer in the region and understands its responsibility to stimulate innovation. It also has an extensive network of strategically selected international university and industry partnerships to call upon.
