Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg – for more than 500 years a place of scientific enlightenment, academic development and future-oriented research – is the largest university in the state of Saxony-Anhalt.

At present, more than 21000 students are enrolled in the university, which encompasses over 190 courses of study in 18 faculties and departments. There are also approx. 1500 international students from over 110 countries.Martin Luther University remains up-to-date with the latest advancements in scientific research, which guarantee a high degree of flexibility - both during one’s studies and later in one’s professional life. This is reached by the close interlocking of research and teaching, of science and education.

On the other hand, it is fully aware of its responsibility as a research institution.

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
