Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt (KU)

Suitable for Language (German) Students.


With around 5,000 students, the KU is currently the smallest University in Bavaria – but it has all the more to offer: Our students benefit from individual support and a wide range of degree programs, outstanding study conditions and excellent facilities such as the well-stocked University Library, the Language Center, Sports Center and Computer Center. Not least: it is located in one of the regions in Germany with the best quality of life.

With a population of around 15,000, it is probably the smallest university town in Europe. For our students, this means living and learning in a friendly and informal atmosphere. Whether it is on the way to a lecture in the morning, at the canteen for lunch or in the pub in the evening, students will often come across people you know. It is easy to meet people in Eichstätt! By the way, the KU’s “living room” is the Theke, a bar run by students for students. Here, people meet for parties, jam sessions, karaoke evenings or a cozy round of table football.

A small town also means short distances: The library, the swimming pool, the cinema or the supermarket – everything can be reached in a few minutes on foot or by bike. The town is located right in the heart of the Altmühltal natural park – a real paradise for climbers, canoeists, hikers and cyclists just around the corner.

Should students still reach a point of feeling too cooped in, then they can breathe big city air easily near Eichstätt. Ingolstadt with its 135,000 inhabitants is only a few kilometers away and offers a variety of shopping and nightlife options.
