The Universität Leipzig is international. Around 28.500 students from Germany and all over the world are enrolled in a degree programme at the second eldest university in Germany. True to the maxim ‘A Tradition of Crossing Boundaries’ our Alma mater Lipsiensis maintains a great variety of successful international partnerships. The more than 2.800 foreign students are an essential part of the internationalscholarly discourse and a greatsupport for the development of the university into an academic institution beyond boundaries. The Universität Leipzig is all about innovation, interdisciplinarity, and – having 14 faculties – offers a wide range of study and research options. The Universität Leipzig was the “cradle” of many important figures in the fields of philosophy, music, literature, natural and social sciences as well as politics. Nietzsche gained his basic knowledge in philosophy at the Universität Leipzig from 1865 onwards, Wagner’s talent for music was nurtured and broadened here, and Verónica Michelle Bachelet Jeria, the first female President of Chile, started her career in Leipzig pursuing a degree in German and Medical Studies. The Universität Leipzig would be elated to support you on your way.
THE STU DY SYSTEM follows a three-tier scheme: A three-year Bachelor’s degree prepares students for their future professional careers. Hereafter, a two-year Master’s degree enables students to specialise in certain academic fields. The specific methodological skills gained therein, can then be applied in possible research projects within a three-year Doctorate programme. THE STU DY SYSTEM is structured in a sequence of semesters. Classes are organised as thematic packages, called “modules”. Modules can be lectures, seminars, internships, or project based work. They are each completed by exams. For every successfully completed module, students are usually awarded 10 credits. Aside from specialised knowledge, students can also acquire key qualifications, such as methodological or soft skills. Per semester, students need to achieve a total of 30 credits corresponding to the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). The individual academic schedules can be organised by choosing courses from a module catalogue.
