University of Koblenz -

Focusing on: education, people and the environment


The University of Koblenz is a young, medium-sized university that emerged from a university of education in 1990. A special feature of the university is its structure with the two campuses in Koblenz and Landau and the university management and central administration in Mainz. A total of about 16,000 students are currently studying at the University of Koblenz-Landau, including many  international students. More than 8,000 students are enrolled at the Koblenz campus.

Studies and research are conducted at both campuses in Koblenz and Landau in a total of 8 faculties. Current research fields at the university focus on education, the environment and computer science, as well as the humanities and social sciences. In addition to German-language BA and MA degree programmes, the university also offers international English-language degree programmes in the fields of environmental sciences, computer science, applied mathematics as well as materials sciences.

A central profile area of the university is knowledge and technology transfer. In this sense, the university supports its students and graduates in starting their own businesses and generally promotes the start-up culture at the university.

The Koblenz campus, located on the Moselle, is modern and manageable and allows students to find their way around quickly and easily. Students study in small groups that enable direct contact between students and lecturers. The studies are rounded off by a lively student life, especially the summer and winter university organised by students every semester.
