The university, at which students from 70 countries are presently registered, was founded in 1456 and is one of the oldest universities in Germany. Today it counts approx. 250 professors and 11,000 students, which is quite special (allowing close personal contact between teachers and students). There are plenty of sports facilities in and around Greifswald. With regard to its academic life, it has been said that there are towns all over the world which have a university, but in Greifswald a university has a town.
Students from EU member states just need to bring their passports. No visa is required. Students from outside the EU need their passports and a visa for study purposes. This can generally be obtained from the German embassy in the home country within four to eight weeks. Usually, the letter of acceptance sent by the International Office at Greifswald University is required in order to have a visa issued. To simplify the administrative procedure, students from abroad should inform the programme coordinator of the date and time of their arrival. This is also important for possibly picking you up at the train station. During the last week in September, just before the winter term starts, Greifswald students organise a programme for our "freshmen" students. The newly arriving students meet each other, discover the town together, and are offered all kinds of information and help.
