HOST INSTITUTION
LMU Munich is one of the leading research universities in Europe, with a more than 500-year-long tradition. We build upon our success in the Excellence Initiative, a Germany-wide competition promoting top-level university research, to enhance our research profile over the next years and strengthen our position at an international level.

The know-how and creative intelligence of our academics form the foundation not only of our success in the Excellence competition, but also of LMU's outstanding research balance as recognized by many national and international university rankings. Some 700 professors and 3,300 academic staff members conduct research and teach in the university's 18 faculties, offering a wide and well-differentiated spectrum that covers all areas of knowledge, whether humanities and cultural sciences, law, economics and sociology, or medicine and the sciences. As a genuine "universitas" LMU Munich has the unique opportunity and a deep obligation to deal with the ever more complex questions facing humankind, society, culture, the environment and technology by creating interdisciplinary solutions.

With degree programs available in 150 subjects in numerous combinations, the array of courses we have to offer is extremely wide. Some 44,000 students, 15 percent of whom come to us from abroad, are currently taking advantage of these opportunities. They view their studies as an investment in the future, a launching pad for their later careers.

LMU Munich takes the education of young people very seriously. When we speak of academic diversity, we also mean a comprehensive education that encompasses social skills alongside a critical awareness of values and history. This includes the Munich legacy of the Weisse Rose, the student-based resistance group that opposed Nazism.
