Philipps-Universität Marburg was established as a Protestant institution in 1527, and is one of the world's oldest universities. We have been offering teaching and research opportunities to curious minds for more than five centuries. We emphasize learning in the fields of natural sciences, theology, and traditional medicine. Our institution is proud to say that we have produced notable alumni, including Otto Hahn and Hannah Arendt.
Twelve percent of the University's student body makes up international students, allowing us to integrate global practices and perspectives into the classroom. Other than undergraduate and graduate programs, we offer international summer programs every year as well as an ERASMUS program open to the public. Our school is located in Marburg, a relatively small university town that provides many natural, cultural, and architectural attractions.
