Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz
The Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) is one of the largest and most diverse universities in Germany with around 31,000 students from 120 nations.
With its university medicine, its colleges for art and music as well as its department of translation, language and cultural studies in Germersheim, it unites almost all academic disciplines under one roof. Around 4,400 scientists, including 570 professors, teach and research in their more than 100 institutes and clinics. With 75 subjects and numerous subject combinations, the JGU offers more than 270 courses.
As the only German university of its size, the JGU houses almost all institutes on a campus close to the city center, which also houses four partner institutes for top-level non-university research: the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry (MPI-C) and the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P), the Helmholtz Institute Mainz (HIM) and the Institute for Molecular Biology (IMB). The campus of university medicine is only about a kilometer away, the two Mainz institutes of the Leibniz Association – the Institute for European History (IEG) and the Roman-Germanic Central Museum (RGZM) – are just a little further away in the city center. There are also numerous research companies that make Mainz a research location with high dynamics.
