International Students at our Faculty


When studying abroad in Göttingen international students can benefit from a wide range of english-taught courses for exchange students as well as two english-taught master degrees, from living in Göttingen – where the dynamics of a student city meet the charm of a traditional German old town – and from a great international environment at our University right in the heart of Germany.




Every year we are pleased to welcome around 150 exchange students from all over the world at our faculty. Next to exchange students it is also a pleasure to welcome international students who are pursuing their whole degree in Göttingen or who are looking for a PhD position! If you are interested in either of the mentioned programmes, please take a look at the information provided below.
