The University of Göttingen is with its 275-years-old history one of the most important and traditional in Germany. About 30,000 young people are currently studying at 13 different faculties here. A share of about twelve percent of foreign students reflects the university's international appeal, a long-standing attribute of the university.
The university distinguishes itself through a comprehensive range of subjects, through the excellent facilities and an outstanding research quality. The Georgia Augusta also identifies itself through the close interlinking of its exceptional non-university research institutes. These on-site partners form a cooperative alliance of successful research and teaching activities: the Göttingen Campus.
Each year, several thousands of outstandingly educated, highly motivated top-notch graduates leave our university. To ensure they all get a successful start to their professional career, the University of Göttingen hosts the central careers fair - the PRAXISBÖRSE - directly on campus each year.
