Information for prospective students

Studying at the sea

The University of Rostock was found in 1419 – therefore, it is the first university in the Baltic sea region. Here has already been researched and taught 75 years before Columbus discovered America. Today the many new buildings and the varied choice of study programs stay for innovative power and modernity of the University of Rostock – quite the motto “traditio et innovation”.
