Young, modern, and research oriented... the University of Potsdam has firmly
established itself within the scientific landscape since its founding in 1991.
Nationally and internationally renowned scientists teach and perform research
here at Brandenburg‘s largest university. The University of Potsdam is successful
in acquiring third-party funds, delivers outstanding performance in technology and
knowledge transfer, and has a very service-oriented administration. With about
20,000 students studying at three campuses - Am Neuen Palais, Griebnitzsee
and Golm - the University of Potsdam is a prominent economic factor and engine
of development for the region. The University of Potsdam has a total of about
2,750 faculty and staff members and is located in one of Germany‘s most scenic
