Humboldt University of Berlin Back
University accreditation applies to courses from this institution
Humboldt-Universität embodies the ideal of a universitas litterarum in the heart of Berlin. Its subject diversity spans from the humanities to the social, cultural, natural, human and medical sciences.
The university was founded in 1810 as a reform university. It was based on Wilhelm von Humboldt’s groundbreaking principles of free research, the unity of research and teaching and the corporate responsibility of a higher education establishment.
The anniversary will not only look back onto the foundation of the university but will also reflect on its many transformations – some glorious, others hopefully never to be repeated. The most recent self-renewal followed the Peaceful Revolution in East Germany in 1989. Many new outstanding professors were appointed from East and West, from at home and from abroad.
Thanks to the successful process of restructuring, Humboldt-Universität is among Germany's top ten universities in national and international rankings attracting the best students from around the world. Research is conducted on socially relevant topics and pressing future concerns, always striving to find workable solutions and looking for new ways to communicate results to the public.
