Heidelberg University – renowned around the world

20.03.2015

The Londoner Magazine "Times Higher Education" chooses the top 100 most prestigious universities worldwide every year. More than 10.000 scientists voted for their ten favorites, that is, which universities they felt are the most renowned. This year, for the first time, two German rank among the top 40. The Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich occupied the 35th place, closely followed by the University of Heidelberg (also known as Ruperto Carola University) on the 38th place. Last year, the University of Heidelberg ranked 50th.

It doesn’t come as a surprise that Ruperto Carola enjoys greater prestige than ever. The oldest university in Germany enjoys an excellent reputation not only in Germany but worldwide. In winter semester 2014/2015 almost 5.400 foreign students enrolled in the University of Heidelberg. It is famous for the wide range of degree programmes it offers – there are more than 100 majors students can chose from – and the fact that all its faculties are known for the quality of their teaching and research. Moreover, the location of Ruperto Carola in the center of Heidelberg’s old town, famous for its beauty and a popular tourist attraction, is another reason for the university’s popularity.

Heidelberg University has been Alma Mater to many thinkers, scientists and Nobel laureates, such as Max Weber, Karl Jaspers, Hans-Georg Gadamer, Robert Bunsen, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel or Harald zur Hausen. The growing recognition of the university by both students and scientists alike proofs that its title as “elite university” is well-justified.
