Tradition and innovation are the trademarks of our 600-year history. Education and research started in Rostock even 73 years before Columbus discovered America as the university was founded already in 1419. A lot has changed in the meantime.

Today, with about 14,000 students and 2,933 staff members, the University of Rostock offers fascinating perspectives into nearly all scientific fields. With the four profile lines Life, Light and Matter / Maritime Systems / Aging Science and Humanities / Knowledge – Culture – Transformation, the University of Rostock has at its disposal excellent interdisciplinary research fields in the areas of natural and technological sciences, medicine, life sciences, humanities and cultural studies. The standard set for all our actions: we want to impress with our performance.

The Hanseatic university city of Rostock is a great place to study, research and live. The economic and scientific centre of the North-East is very enticing, with all the atmosphere of a major city in the middle of one of the most beautiful tourist areas in Germany.

There is always something to do in Rostock. The university benefits from the many advantages of the city where it is situated: the beautiful Old Town, a lively cultural scene, the countless amenities of modern life, a first rate public transport system – not to mention the maritime atmosphere, the sea and the sandy beaches

Studying in Rostock is a win for your personal development. Not only will you acquire an understanding of intercultural differences, and a proficiency for the German language, but a study abroad also helps you begin creating international contacts and friendships.
