Germany - Humboldt University of Berlin

Humboldt University of Berlin

Suitable for Law Students


At the time of its foundation in October 1810, the University of Berlin consisted of the four traditional faculties: Law, Medicine, Philosophy and Theology. Initially, the Royal Library was made available to the University. The University Library was established in 1831.

Today, Humboldt-Universität consists of nine faculties, several interdisciplinary centres and institutions, as well as clusters and graduate schools. The University and the Charité Medical School are currently home to 38,000 students, over 16 percent of whom come from abroad. Thus, in the decade after political changes in Germany and internal restructuring, Humboldt became one of the most attractive universities to attend in Germany.

The University has an exceptionally diverse range of subjects - especially in the Arts and Humanities - that currently comprises 190 study courses. This includes many "small" disciplines such as Biophysics or Ancient Greek as well as the "large" disciplines of Law and Medicine. The University also offers a wide range of teacher training study courses, including Rehabilitation Sciences with its specialisations.

Diversity of knowledge and variations in teaching them are key to the Humboldtian idea of education. International Students who want to spend part of the course at Humboldt-Universitaet or have enrolled for a degree here are especially welcome. They contribute their academic expertise and international perspectives to the academic forum, giving Humboldt students an opportunity to know about other types of knowledge and other cultures in higher education. We are convinced that you will be able to achieve the learning outcomes you set out to attain both academically and culturally while absorbing knowledge the Humboldt way.
