… to one of the most international faculties at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg.

Thanks to the excellent quality and worldwide networking of our scientists, the Faculty of Sciences has long been internationally oriented.

In addition to joint research projects with partners on all continents, this internationalization is also reflected at home. We welcome researchers from all over the world to Erlangen. Over 15% of our professors and staff have come to the metropolitan region from abroad. The Faculty of Sciences is a top address for international doctoral students.

We will maintain and further increase this attractiveness. In addition to our research strength, we also want to attract and retain highly qualified young scientists by internationalizing our teaching.

Master’s degree programs taught entirely in English enable (language) barrier-free access for international students to FAU. Intensive support and our buddy program help our international newcomers to settle in quickly and make a successful start to their studies.

However, we also want to open doors in the other direction and encourage FAU students to spend time abroad during their studies.

To this end, we have concluded a number of cooperation agreements with universities all over the world and also help our students to find funding opportunities.
