International Living and Studying in Freiburg

Freiburg is "in the middle of Europe" - and not just in the geographical sense. The beautiful location in southwestern Germany, just a stone's throw from France and Switzerland, attracts many people from neighboring European countries and other continents. Whether as employees, tourists or students - they enjoy being guests in Freiburg. The University of Freiburg is proud of the large proportion of international students, which is over 20% in the economics courses. A comprehensive range of services, the large number of English-language courses, the living international mobility of Freiburg's students, and many intercultural groups and projects testify to the cosmopolitanism of Freiburg University and its members and ensure that students from over 120 different countries feel welcome here.



The trinational EUCOR network comprises the five Upper Rhine universities: University of Freiburg, University of Basel, Université de Strasbourg, University of Karlsruhe (TH) and the Université des Haute Alsace, Mulhouse/Colmar.

Students enrolled at one of the five EUCOR universities have the same usage rights and benefits at all other member universities as local students. This includes, in particular, participation in courses without incurring separate fees. Through cross-border studies, supplementary studies in particular can be carried out at another EUCOR university. At the same time, it is also possible to gain experience abroad in an uncomplicated way and to acquire or improve language skills.
