Research is a key strength of FAU. In many fields, our university counts among the major global players in higher education with connections to more than 500 universities worldwide. This strength feeds directly into your education because research and teaching at FAU are intertwined, bringing the latest breakthroughs and insights straight into the classroom.

International students thrive at FAU, not least thanks to our broad range of degree programmes taught entirely in English especially at the postgraduate level. You will join a young, bustling community fluent in English and open to cultural exchange, so it‘s easy to settle in.
