Awards and certificates
The University of Bayreuth is more than just a place to learn, work, or study. The fact that we live up to this claim time and again can be seen, among other things, in our awards and certificates. They are confirmation and at the same time an obligation to consistently pursue the values to which we are committed in our mission statement: promoting diversity, equal opportunities and family-friendliness, excellence in research and teaching, and sustainability in all our actions.
Family Friendly University
We attach great importance to creating the optimal conditions for the compatibility of work, study, and family. The family-friendly infrastructure of our campus was audited in 2006, 2010 and 2013 by berufundfamilie gGmbH of the Hertie Foundation and found to be of a good standard. In 2016, the University of Bayreuth joined the best practice club "Family in Higher Education" and signed the corresponding charter.
University of Bayreuth to become fully accessible
Fully-accessible studying - we work every day to make this possible at our university. Every student at our university should have the same opportunity to obtain a university degree. With or without a handicap, everyone should be able to participate in social life on an equal footing. For its efforts, the University of Bayreuth received the 2017 'Bavaria Barrier-Free' award from Bernd Sibler in his function as State Secretary for Science.
Bavaria‘s first Fairtrade University
Think globally – act locally. We acknowledge the responsibility we have as a university through our consumption choices. We aim to help improve the living conditions of all people in our various supply chains. That is why we have already switched many products to Fairtrade. For this, we were the first university in the Free State of Bavaria to receive an award. This is both an honour and an obligation for us.
Seal of quality for studies and teaching
To provide students with a high level of professional competence, to promote the development of their personality and also to enable them to become socially involved - all of our degree programmes are geared towards these goals. To ensure that the required quality standards are met, we have developed our own quality assurance system. This successfully passed system accreditation in 2016.
Successful in internationalization
In 2012/13, we submitted our internationalization strategy to the "Internationalization of Higher Education Institutions" of the German Rectors' Conference audit for the first time. The successful completion of the three-year re-audit in October 2019 certifies that our university has committed itself to clear internationalization goals and is systematically pursuing them.
