Program Icon Program Overview
The University of Cologne is a modern university in the heart of Europe. Academic excellence, internationally and widely varied curricula create a vibrant and inspiring environment for students, scientists and scholars.

While many other universities founded in late medieval Germany owe their origins to the initiatives of prominent clerical and secular regents, it was the towns people of Cologne who erected the city’s university. Hence, Cologne University is still today a city university in a twofold sense: it was founded by Cologne’s citizens and, even as a campus university, lies in the hub of the urban area.

About Icon About Köln
Cologne or in Germany known as Köln is the fourth-largest city in Germany and the biggest one in the North-Rhine Westphalia region.

The Cologne people call their city lovingly "the largest and most famous small town in the world" because Cologne combines the advantages of a large metropolis with those of a small town.
Cologne is one of the country's most historic cities, and many of the best sights are to be found close to its Kölner Dom (cathedral), close to the main train station (Hauptbahnhof).
