Rektor Prof. Dr. Axel Freimuth“An investment in knowledge is still bound to yield the highest interest.”

Education and science are the motor for innovations as well as the fundament for the future viability of our society.
The future – it is embodied in our students, who through their skills, their commitment and their inquisitiveness contribute to the forming of tomorrow’s world. In doing so, they need the best conditions for studying and an environment that enables them to concentrate wholeheartedly on their academic endeavours.

It is for this reason that we have launched the Stiftung Studium und Lehre. With this Study and Teaching Foundation, we seek to render financial support to highly qualified students or students in need of assistance, and to expand our international exchange programme.
Planned infrastructure projects are to ensure in future that study programmes and teaching are strengthened further.

Help us to offer the up-and-coming generation the best educational opportunities. Your financial backing is important and will be greatly appreciated.

Cordially yours,

Axel Freimuth
