Studying & Researching

With more than 70 universities and more than 100 non-university research institutions, Baden-Württemberg belongs to the top science locations in Germany. Teaching and research are closely interknit: The results of the research activity flow back into the teaching and ensure the high level of training this way.

Baden-Württemberg offers the best possible perspectives for studies and working life – with the highest university density and the most diverse university landscape throughout Germany – on a high level. As many as four of eleven excellence universities nationwide are located in Baden-Württemberg. Besides the universities, there are universities for applied sciences, the Baden-Württemberg dual university (DHBW), pedagogic universities, art and music universities and private universities.
