The Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz
With around 31,000 students from 120 nations, the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) is one of the largest and most diverse universities in Germany
With its university medicine, its colleges of art and music, and its Department of Translation, Linguistics and Cultural Studies in Germersheim, it unites almost all academic disciplines
In its more than 100 institutes and clinics, around 4,400 scientists, including 570 professors, teach and conduct research
With 76 subjects and numerous subject combinations, it offers 289 courses of study.
JGU is the only German university of its size to house almost all of its institutes on a campus close to the city center, which is also home to five partner institutes of cutting-edge non-university research: the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry (MPI-C), the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P), the Helmholtz Institute Mainz (HIM), the Institute for Biotechnology and Drug Research (IBWF) and the Institute for Molecular Biology (IMB)
The campus of the University Medical Center is only about one kilometer away, and the three Mainz institutes of the Leibniz Association - the Institute of European History (IEG), the Leibniz Institute for Resilience Research (LIR) and the Roman-Germanic Central Museum (RGZM) - are located only a little further away in the city center
In addition, there are numerous research-based companies that contribute to the high dynamics of Mainz as a research location.
