University of Bonn We are one of eleven German Universities of Excellence, the only university with six Clusters of Excellence and more Nobel Prize winners and Fields Medalists have emerged from our University in the past decades than from any other German university. For 200 years, our University has been shaped by outstanding personalities from a wide range of subjects. We are known for research-led study programs, the international flair of Bonn as German's city of the United Nations and as part of a dynamic science region in the heart of the liveable Rhineland. With around 35,000 students, 6,000 doctoral candidates, 550 professors and 6,000 employees, we are one of the largest traditional research universities in Germany. European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) Viadrina is an innovative and international university with around 25% international students from over 90 countries (average at German Universities is 12%). The setting of the Viadrina on the German‐Polish border with access to the capital Berlin makes it highly attractive for international students. Students can live and study in two countries ‐ our campus in Poland is only a 10 minutes’ walk from our German campus. We guarantee housing in our student dorms, which are situated on both sides of the Oder river while being very affordable (approx. 100‐300€ per month). A student semester ticket allows to travel freely in Berlin and the federal state of Brandenburg and to enjoy the assets of Germany’s capital, which is only a 1h commute by train.

The university also offers subjects that are only available at a few other German universities, such as International Horticulture and Earth Sciences or master programmes in Water Resources and Environmental Management as well as European Law. We strongly support our incoming students providing them with various services (e.g. welcome reception, orientation days, accommodation). University of Kassel The University of Kassel is a young, modern and vibrant university, characterized by its openness to new ideas in every single area of its work.

Humboldt-University Berlin Two hundred years ago, in 1810, Wilhelm von Humboldt's vision of a new type of university became reality. The newly founded Prussian alma mater was the first to introduce the unity of research and teaching, to uphold the ideal of research without restrictions and to provide a comprehensive education for its students. These principles of Wilhelm von Humboldt and a select group of contemporaries soon became general practice throughout the world. A new era of university and academic research had begun. BSc students are only allowed to take (German) BSc courses from Agrarwissenschaften and Gartenbauwissenschaften. However for Master students, there are more options for courses in English. Technical University Berlin (TUB) The Technical University Berlin (TUB) has a long and rich tradition and is recognized globally as an excellent research university. Our goal is to continue to develop science and technology for the benefit of our society. The members of the university are wholly committed to the principle of sustainable development which tackles contemporary challenges without further burdening future generations. For us, research and teaching are inseparably linked. Bremen University The University of Bremen is a medium-sized German university with around 20,000 students. Bremen offers a wide range of subjects and degrees for its committed and talented students: more than 100 master’s and bachelor’s degrees, as well as the state law exam. Moreover, with research-based learning, the university has reinterpreted project-based courses, a defining feature originating from when the University of Bremen was founded. WUR students going on exchange can apply to the Department of Geography and the Department of Biology and Chemistry. Technical University Dresden (TUD) The Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) is one of the largest “Technische Universitäten” in Germany and one of the leading and most dynamic universities in Germany.

University of Göttingen "In Publica Commoda - For the Good of All" reads the inscription on the Foundation Medal of Georg-August-Universität Göttingen. Established in the age of the Enlightenment (1737) and committed to its critical spirit, the "Georgia Augusta" was one of Europe's first universities to abandon the supremacy of theology and achieve equality for all faculties. Emphasis on basic research and orientation towards source criticism and experimentation proved to be decisive preconditions for the development of the modern humanities and natural sciences, a development strongly influenced by the Georgia Augusta.
