We offer get a very well-distinguished education in agribusiness and its neighbouring fields of study.

Besides this, Göttingen does not only have a university, Göttingen is a university, so it has been said for the past 270 years. That means: every third resident downtown is a student, the city is lively, young and not too big - everything is close by.

In Göttingen you don't only meet friends in the lecture hall, you get in contact with them on the streets of downtown, at concerts, in the theatre, at sports and in the numerous cafes and bars. Studying in Göttingen is traditionally internationally oriented. The motto is themed "studying while well taken care of". Göttingen is a lovable city, in which the ground stone has been laid for many careers.
