An excellent place to study
In various rankings studying at the University of Greifswald is regularly assessed as one of the best options in Germany. Small classes, well-equipped libraries and intensive contacts to the professors are the rule rather than the exception here.
But not only are the conditions for studying very well. With around 50 different subjects in theology and arts, law and economic sciences, natural sciences and medicine, Greifswald offers a wide choice. Precise information for degree-seeking students about the individual subjects and their requirements, applications, deadlines and appointments are provided by the Central Student Advisory Service. The lecture lists inform you about courses and seminars.
International students, particularly exchange students who are not studying for a degree from the University of Greifswald, are advised to contact the university's International Office for further information. All questions connected with international students coming to Greifswald and students from Greifswald going abroad are answered by the staff at the International Office. Note that most courses at the University of Greifswald are taught in German, thus good German language proficiency is mostly required.
The Student Union is responsible for the students' social concerns. It runs the refectory and student hostels and decides on educational grants (BAföG). Further information about all areas of study is provided by the students' representatives in the AStA and by students in the departments.
