Universität Hamburg (UHH)


Numbering around 41,000 students, with some 5,000 international students from over 130 countries, Universität Hamburg is one of the largest higher education institutions in Germany. The University unites diverse teaching and excellent research. With more than 170 degree programs, Universität Hamburg offers all the disciplines associated with a comprehensive university across its eight faculties: Law; Economics and Social Sciences; Medicine; Education; Psychology and Human Movement Science; Humanities; Mathematics, Informatics and the Natural Sciences.

Universität Hamburg is Germany's first democratically founded university and was inaugurated in 1919 by the Hamburg State Parliament. Nobel Prize winners Otto Stern, Wolfgang Pauli, Isidor Rabi, and Hans Jensen all worked at the University, as did a number of other famous researchers and scientists, such as Ernst Cassirer, Erwin Panofsky, Aby Warburg, William Stern, Agathe Lasch, Magdalene Schoch, Emil Artin, Karl Schiller, Lord Ralf Dahrendorf, and Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker.

Universität Hamburg is committed to the idea of sustainable science and scholarship. The Center for a Sustainable University (KNU) functions as an academic platform for interdisciplinary concepts and procedures relating to sustainability. All these measures are guided by the University's avowal to pursue the motto inscribed above the entrance of the Main Building donated by businessman Edmund Siemers: "To Research, To Teach, To Educate and Form."
