About the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE)

Arts and Science on the Rhine and Ruhr

Creative inspiration between the Rhine and Ruhr: the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) is located in the European region with the highest density of institutions of higher learning. Created in 2003 by the merger of the universities of Duisburg and Essen, the UDE is the youngest university in North Rhine-Westphalia and one of the ten largest universities in Germany. Both campuses are easy to reach and offer some 31,000 students a broad academic spectrum with an international orientation – ranging from the humanities and social sciences to economics and the engineering and natural sciences, including medicine. Students from 130 countries are currently enrolled at the UDE. In many disciplines the UDE ranks amongst the TOP 10 of German research universities. Over the past three years, research income has risen by 150 percent, a development which is also thanks to the five main research areas: Nanosciences, Biomedical Sciences, Urban Systems, Empirical Research in Education, and Change of Contemporary Societies.

The World at our Door

Anybody visiting the campuses of the University of Duisburg-Essen will be sure to hear, in addition to German and English, many other languages. Students from 130 countries attend the University, from A for Argentina through C for China, I for India and T for Turkey, to Z for Zaire. Young people come from every corner of the earth to the centrally located university at the heart of Europe. There are plenty of good reasons for choosing the UDE: the subject, the level of student support and supervision, strong research or the international outlook.

Allround Support

The University of Duisburg-Essen is highly committed to offering students the best possible conditions in which to study and work. With a range of different measures, it helps students to pursue and complete their studies successfully, promotes young talent, and takes the differing backgrounds and needs of its students into account.

Studying: one of the most important tools the UDE uses to support students during their studies is its comprehensive mentoring system. This special programme is designed to lend students precisely the individual support they need in every faculty, particularly during the critical early stages of their courses and at exam time.

Scholarships: any institution expecting high performance from its students must also be willing to invest in it. The UDE therefore takes part – very successfully – in the North Rhine-Westphalia Scholarship Programme. Since its inception in 2009, this programme has been supporting talented and ambitious students from at home and abroad.

Diversity to the Power of Three

When the three universities of Bochum, Dortmund and Duisburg-Essen joined forces to form the Universitätsallianz Metropole Ruhr (University Alliance Metropolis Ruhr – UAMR), they created the best teaching and learning conditions for their 90,000 students and 1,250 professors and an even greater choice of subjects and courses in the region. With simplified procedures for admissions and recognition of course credits within the UAMR, students can be cross-registered with the partner universities at no additional fee.
