More than two hundred years ago, in 1810, Wilhelm von Humboldt’s vision of a new type of university became reality. The newly founded Prussian alma mater was the first to introduce the unity of research and teaching, to uphold the ideal of research without restrictions and to provide a comprehensive education for its students. As one of eleven German universities, the Humboldt-Universität was chosen “University of Excellence” in June 2012. It was successful in all three funding lines in the third round of the Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments and awarded for its future concept “Educating Enquiring Minds: Individuality – Openness – Guidance”. In an international comparison, Humboldt University ranks among the top ten of German universities. Scientists here research socially relevant topics and challenges of the future and communicate these with the public. Its aim is to promote young talents and to positively influence society and economy outside the university framework. The university is divided into nine faculties, including its medical school shared with the Free University of Berlin, has a student enrollment of around 38,000 students, and offers degree programmes in 171 disciplines from undergraduate to postdoctorate level. Its main campus is located on the Unter den Linden boulevard in central Berlin.
