The University of Erfurt

In 1994, the University of Erfurt was re-established following German reunification. Founded to serve as a model for university reform, the University of Erfurt was among the first institutions of higher education in Germany to introduce BA/MA degrees throughout all its departments. English is an officially recognized language of instruction.

At the undergraduate level, the University of Erfurt is basically a fine liberal arts college with a concentration on the humanities and the social sciences. At the graduate level, the university offers a range of research oriented master’s and doctoral programs as well as professional degrees like the Master of Public Policy.

With a total student body of just about 6,000, Erfurt is a small university.
There is a sense of intimacy and community on campus, proximity being a major asset of Erfurt and its university.

Modern teaching facilities, a state-of-the-art library and modern and affordable dormitories are grouped around a small park, making the campus the heart of academic and student life.
