Why should I study here?

Tradition and innovation are the trademarks of our almost 600-year history. Education and research started in Rostock even 73 years before Columbus discovered America as the university was founded in 1419. A lot has changed in the meantime. Such as the technical faculty, founded in 1951—the first one ever established at a classical university. Plenty of new, modern buildings, such as the completely new campus for natural sciences in the district of Suedstadt, represent the innovative strength and modernity of our university.

The University of Rostock offers fascinating perspectives in nearly all scientific fields. With the four profile lines Life, Light and Matter/Maritime Systems/Aging Science and Humanities/Knowledge – Culture – Transformation, the University of Rostock has at its disposal excellent interdisciplinary research fields in the areas of natural and technological sciences, medicine, life sciences, humanities, and cultural studies. The standard is set for all our actions: we want to impress with our performance.The Hanseatic university city of Rostock is a great place to study, research, and live. The economic and scientific centre of the North-East is very enticing, with all the atmosphere of a major city in the middle of one of the most beautiful tourist areas in Germany.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
We're going to be talking about the differences in the educational experience, meaning the academic side of things that students have in Europe versus in the US. So I'm always taken aback when people assume that universities in the US are the best globally.
