The prestigious Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in the heart of Munich/Germany annually ranks among the top 60 universities in the world. Student life outside the lecture halls offers a great variety of student services: An inexpensive cafeteria, yet also many cafés, student bars and restaurants in the area, the proximity to the Englischer Garten (one of the largest urban public parks in the world) and the river Isar, numerous free lectures and workshops by renowned scholars from around the world and access to a multitude of sources and libraries, including the famous Bavarian State Library only a 5-minute walk from the main University building.
Yet, Student life inside the two-storied auditorium, where famous people like the protestors Hans and Sophie School had studied, differs greatly according to your major. While degree courses like Business and Law offer elite programs, they are often considered overcrowded and impersonal. You sometimes have to be an hour early to your class in order to secure a spot on the stairs. And only the best of the best are able to stand out from the crowd.
However, when you decide to join a smaller faculty and degree program, the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität opens doors to a world-class education. Especially, when you have worked yourself through the first one or two semesters of your basic studies, most programs provide a variety of interesting courses, even interdisciplinary, and professors who not only care about their field of study but also their students.
In the recent years, Munich has attracted more and more students and thus created new challenges it will face in the upcoming years. There are no tuition fees, but the living costs are an essential factor when considering a move to Munich. Still, Munich is regularly ranked in the top 5 of the most livable cities in the world and when you have your first beer during study break on a warm summer evening, overlooking the Isar or joining the summer street festivals outside the University, listening to the familiar sounds of Munich… you know that Munich is always the right choice.
Wide range of disciplines, good teachers, excellent refectory, good leisure opportunities around the university.
Located in the heart of the city, all within easy reach. Subway station directly on the campus.
A little bit of parking, but enough bicycle parking spaces.
