About Martin Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg:

Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg – for more than 500 years a place of scientific enlightenment, academic development and future-oriented research – is the largest university in the state of Saxony-Anhalt. Above all, however, it is an efficient, modern full-university, which maintains the highest requirements for teaching and research. At present, more than 21000 students are enrolled in the university, which encompasses over 190 courses of study in 18 faculties and departments. There are also approx. 1500 international students from over 110 countries. Martin Luther University remains up-to-date with the latest advancements in scientific research, which guarantee a high degree of flexibility - both during one’s studies and later in one’s professional life. This is reached by the close interlocking of research and teaching, of science and education. The university sees itself, on the one hand, as an intellectual, cultural centre in the region, one that works in close connection and collaboration with the city. On the other hand, it is fully aware of its responsibility as a research institution. This is shown by the intensive cooperation with numerous high-ranking, non-university research establishments, often located in close proximity to the university, which are also a great benefit to the very hands-on oriented training of the students. Interdisciplinary studies are highly encouraged at Martin Luther University. For this reason, scientific centres for interdisciplinary studies are an important characteristic of the university. Here, scientists actively investigate and study specialised problems from the most diverse scientific and intellectual areas. The main goal of these centres is to recognize the possibility of new developments, through the research of respective single-disciplinary studies, and to thereby promote interdisciplinary research and teaching.
