UoC at a Glance ⓘ

From its establishment in 1388, the University of Cologne has been a center of science and scholarship in Europe. Today, it is one of the leading German research universities. We offer an exceptionally broad and diverse subject base to our students and encourage them to follow their own academic interests and to develop both intellectually and personally. We are firmly committed to the advancement of human knowledge through basic research, but also have an eye on transfer and application in the real word.
