The University of Koblenz-Landau is a young, mid-sized university. It was trans-formed from a teacher training college in 1990. Today, the university’s academic pro-file is distinguished by the Education Sciences, the Humanities, Cultural Science, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Computer Science and Psychology. This profile is the foundation for a diverse program of studies and opportunities for continuing edu-cation, as well as for scientific basic and applied research.
The increase in the number of students shows that the Campuses in Koblenz and Landau are attractive places to study. Since 1990, the number of students has tri-pled. In the meantime, 13,000 students are registered, half of whom are in Koblenz, and half in Landau. Compared to large universities, the lectures and studies occur on a smaller scale, which supports the communication among students and between students and faculty. The university cities of Koblenz and Landau and their surround-ing regions (Middle Rhine and Southern Palatinate) are also especially attractive.
