Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany


  • Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) is a state-funding research university, founded in 1743.
  • After a half century of establishment, the University was transformed to a state-run institution as a result of the political power transferred to Bavaria, which consequently improved the university’s finances but did weaken much of its autonomy.
  • FAU now is among the twelve largest universities in Germany with an enrolment of 35,363 students and a total of 3,708 of professors and faculty members.
  • The University offers over twenty international degree programmes that are partly or purely taught in English and that are for international students in particular.
