University of Göttingen

With a history going back more than 275 years, the Georg-August-University of Göttingen is one of the most traditional and important universities in Germany. More than 30,000 young people study here at 13 diverse faculties. A share of over twelve percent of foreign students attests to the international attractiveness that the university traditionally possesses.

Every year, several thousand excellently trained and highly motivated graduates leave the university.
