University of Bayreuth – a prudent decision.

The University of Bayreuth is well-connected internationally and is constantly setting new standards with its innovative responses to social developments and processes. One thing is certain: on this unique campus, interdisciplinary thinking goes well beyond the usual forms of interdepartmental cooperation. Proof can be found in our many interdisciplinary programmes of study. We offer students bachelor's and master's programmes that are one-of-a-kind in Germany. An excellent study environment awaits you.

Quality over quantity – You too can study at the University of Bayreuth.

Why don't you visit our campus and come see for yourself? If you are still unsure about the degree programme for you – no problem! We would be happy to advise you, and help you find your perfect course of study.

Study: Current regulations in times of coronavirus

For the 2022/2023 winter semester, the University of Bayreuth is striving for a 100 percent of in-person teaching. 

However, for students from Corona risk groups, participation in classroom events may pose an increased health risk. In this case, the University of Bayreuth is committed to finding alternative solutions for their participation in studies. Students from risk groups are asked to contact the Diversity Service Office for individual advice and support.

Please assume that your presence on campus and at our branch offices, and thus university as a community experience, will be required to a much greater extent, and align your personal planning accordingly. If the legal situation and the requirements for infection control should change yet again, you will immediately receive new information in this regard.
