Quality over quantity.
Thinking and operating internationally demands more than just being one of the most attractive universities in Bavaria and occupying top positions in national teaching and research rankings. For this reason, we have set development targets for the year 2020 in order to further sharpen the University of Bayreuth’s unique profile and competitive edge:
- Thanks to its diverse array of disciplines and strategically chosen focus areas, the University of Bayreuth is internationally recognized for its research contributions and offers an excellent study environment.
- The University of Bayreuth is one of the leading destinations in Germany in terms of its study environment and the level of its students.
- The University of Bayreuth is a medium-sized campus university which is committed to the highest academic standards and which has made a conscious effort to set itself apart from larger universities.
As one of Germany’s youngest universities, we are able to operate in an unbiased, self-confident spirit of academic freedom, scientific progress, and social responsibility. In line with our vision, our top priorities are individual supervision, maintaining high academic standards, and creating programmes of study that take current research into account. Our interdisciplinary focus and the innovative collaboration between many of our disciplines are key features of Bayreuth’s research culture.
