The University of Wuppertal (BUW)

Bergische Universität Wuppertal, founded in 1972, is one of the state universities in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), which is economically the most significant German state with an outstanding educational and cultural landscape. The city of Wuppertal, the seventh largest city in NRW and world-famous for its suspension railway, is a university city with a population of around 343,000. It is situated close to Düsseldorf and Cologne in a particularly delightful region with wooded hills, meadows, orchards and fields, called the “Bergisches Land”, and is an interesting mixture of outgoing metropolis and cosy village with a lot of leisure facilities. From any part of the city it is only a 10 minute walk to the nearest park or shady woodland path.

The University of Wuppertal towers over the city. The main campus enjoys a panoramic view across the town – a perfect environment for developing inspiring ideas and academic projects that will shape the future. Some 23.000 students from more than 100 countries benefit from our high-level academic approaches in teaching, and the university’s commitment to research and international collaboration. Wuppertal University offers a diverse range of programs in science, engineering economics and the humanities, as well as educational science, design and architecture. Our academic culture is marked by diversity, experience and innovation.
