Studying in Bonn

Studying at the University of Bonn means learning from the very best: teaching in our over 200 degree programs is performed by internationally leading academics working at the cutting edge of their subject. The wide range of subjects taught at the University makes an interdisciplinary approach possible. A network of partners located on five continents facilitates learning in international contexts and promotes intercultural dialog.

Our students learn to develop their own questions, ideas and solutions and to defend them in academic discourse. This prepares them to respond to and shape the dynamic professional challenges posed by our modern knowledge society.

Our high quality standard in studying and teaching is supported by a quality assurance system that allows us to constantly develop new content and methods for university studies and teaching. This provides ideal conditions for our students to unfold their individual potential. To this end, we believe that personal interaction between instructors and students is key.

Important note

Please find up-to-date information for students on the coronavirus on this web page.

Vaccination for students

In the 2021/2022 winter semester, the focus in teaching returns to in-person events. In-person events are only possible again as the majority of students, lecturers and staff got coronavirus vaccinations.

If you have not been vaccinated yet, there are different options to get a vaccination appointment. Information and dates on vaccinations are listed on the City of Bonn and Rhein-Sieg-Kreis district websites. The University of Bonn also offers vaccinations where possible and promptly announces these on our coronavirus webpage and on social media.
