University of Koblenz · Landau

The University of Koblenz · Landau is one of the youngest universities in Germany and has grown considerably in its relatively short history. Since its transformation from a teacher training college in 1990, numerous new departments and institutes have sprung up. In addition, a wide range of new degree programs and chairs have been created, and existing courses and research consistently expanded. At the eight existing faculties on the two campuses in Koblenz and Landau, you can currently study Education, Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences, Computer Science (Koblenz) and Psychology (Landau). Since 1990 the number of students has increased dramatically to about 15.000 enrolled students, with approximately 7.500 at each campus.

A special feature of the University of Koblenz · Landau is its structure. Koblenz and Landau provide excellent facilities for research, teaching and continuing education, while Mainz serves as the link between the two campuses, housing the President's office as well as being the home of the university executive and central university administration.
