Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz

Suitable for all students - except Engineering


JGU offers a wide range of subjects and courses, including humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, media and economics, medicine, art, music, and sport - only technical subjects and engineering are not offered.
International courses in humanities and economics enable bi- or tri-national qualifications to be obtained. Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) today is one of the largest universities in Germany and is home to around 31,000 students. It is the only German university of its size to unite nearly all of its Departments on one campus, which is located in close proximity to Mainz city centre. This campus provides students with a place to study, research and live. Alongside academic institutions, it also contains student accommodation, childcare facilities, and even restaurants and cafés. Our Faculty of Translation Studies, Linguistics and Cultural Studies is located in the German town of Germersheim, which is 100 km upriver from the main campus.
