University of Regensburg

Regensburg, Germany


The University of Regensburg, officially known as Universität Regensburg in German was established in 1962 in Regensburg, Bavaria, Germany. Though the University of Regensburg was established in 1960s but the idea of the establishment of its own university in the region of Bavaria had been going on since 15th century. Many protestants reformers in the early 17th and 18th century proposed the idea and made an effort to establish the educational institution, but their efforts were always put down to soil by the invaders and catholic personnel. Finally, after the end of the World War II, a group of intellectuals and academicians in Eastern Bavaria established the Association of the Friends of the University (Verein der Freunde der Universität Regensburg e. V.) in 1948 whose aim was to advocate the creation of a university for Regensburg and the Upper Palatinate region. After numerous meetings with the local government and the board of education, the association's advocacy proved successful in 1962 when the government authorized the creation of the university. Today, the University of Regensburg has 11 faculties including Faculty of Catholic Theology; Faculty of Law; Faculty of Business, Economics and Management Information Systems; Faculty of Medicine; Faculty of Philosophy, Art History, History, and Humanities; Faculty of Psychology, Education, and Sport Science; Faculty of Languages, Literature, and Cultures; Faculty of Mathematics; Faculty of Physics; Faculty of Biology and Pre-Clinical Medicine and Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy. The University of Regensburg offers wide range of programs at undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral levels in Medicine, Law, sciences, Social Sciences, Law, Pharmacy, Health Science, Physics, Psychology, Mathematics, Sports, Languages, Natural Science, Economics, Business, Communication, Theology, Humanities and many other disciplines. Today, the University of Regensburg is located entirely on one central campus which is spread on 280 acre land in the south of Regensburg's inner city, and directly adjacent to the Regensburg University of Applied Sciences and the A 3 autobahn.
