Broad subject spectrum and research-oriented teaching

Offering a range of almost 200 study programmes at 13 Faculties, the University of Göttingen provides its approximately 31,500 students with a wide spectrum of subjects. At all stages of degree studies, students experience teaching with a research orientation. Already at the level of bachelor degree studies, students receive guidance enabling them to tackle research projects of their own, while the internationally oriented master degree courses are predominantly research-based. Doctoral students receive structured training within almost 50 doctoral programmes under the auspices of the four large Göttingen Graduate Schools. As part of its internationalisation strategy, the University is pressing ahead with the internationalisation of all curricula.
