The high ranking Otto-Friedrich Universität Bamberg offers a wide range of subjects in a campus spread throughout the World Heritage city of Bamberg, a beautiful location in Bavaria with an easy going lifestyle.

It promotes internationalism and networking with other universities and research institutions. International guests are provided an extensive program of excursions and events to introduce them to German culture.
Unique characteristics
The university offers roughly 100 programs with a main focus on the Humanities, Social Sciences, Economics, Business Administration and Human Sciences. Its courses in psychology, economics and the social sciences are among the best in Germany.
Bamberg’s old city has UNESCO World Heritage status, but it’s a young city with plenty of students from all over the world. Bamberg is in the Regnitz valley and close to Switzerland. It offers numerous pubs, bars, clubs and cafes as well as Germany’s highest concentration of breweries.
