University of Leipzig

Leipzig University was founded in 1409, making it one of the oldest universities in Germany. On its ambitious path to becoming a top-level European university and internationally recognised seat of research and learning for young scholars, the University draws on an extensive range of subject areas. The university embraces the tradition of crossing boundaries and strives for interdisciplinary cooperation extending beyond single subject areas and institute boundaries to live up to its standard in research and teaching. The motto of its institutional strategy – ‘Leipzig: Human Living Conditions. Diversity and Dynamics’ – reflects the university’s research focus as well as the attractiveness of Leipzig as a location.
