The University of Passau
Some 13,000 students from more than 100 countries are currently studying towards their degrees on our bright, modern campus next to the Inn River and a stone's throw from the town centre and the historical Old Town.
The four faculties of the University offer degrees at the undergraduate, Master’s and doctoral levels. Currently, five Master’s programmes – MSc Computational Mathematics, MSc Computer Science, MA Development Studies, MSc International Economics and Business and MSc Mobile and Embedded Systems – can be studied entirely in English.
A cosmopolitan university
No other Bavarian university has more of its students spending part of their programme abroad – to study, conduct research or gain work experience – than the University of Passau.
The range and depth of language tuition offered by our Language Centre probably has a role to play in this. Another reason is that our programmes are very international in their outlook – and with more than 200 international partner universities to choose from, it is difficult not to be tempted to go abroad for a semester or two or even to complete one of our 20 double degree programmes offered in co-operation with our global partner universities.
An unparalleled student experience
Passau’s students benefit from a good staff-to-student ratio and from studying on an urban campus of manageable size that is located very close to the town centre.
The facilities on campus are of a high standard: There are bright, sunny seminar rooms, lecture theatres equipped with the latest technology, numerous computer rooms, Wi-Fi access exists throughout the campus, and our well-stocked university library stays open until midnight on most days.
Student satisfaction at the University of Passau is particularly high and our sought-after graduates typically occupy executive posts in business, social, and academic organisations in Germany, Europe, and indeed all over the world.
Throughout the semester, there are plenty of events of all sorts on campus and around town, often organised by our very active student societies. The Sports Centre has some 40 sports clubs, including acrobatics, climbing, rowing and yoga.
