Description

The University of Siegen is a German research university.

The university’s motto is “Creating a humane future”.

In 1964 the university was established as Pädagogische Hochschule Siegerland. This merged with a nearby technical college in 1972, creating a comprehensive university. However, the region’s academic heritage far predates the university. As far back as 1536, the theologian Erasmus was looking to establish a school in the area, at the request of William the Rich.

Siegen has four faculties: Arts and Humanities, Education, Architecture and Arts, Economic Disciplines and Science and Technology.

The university has over 120 international partnerships and takes part in ERASMUS exchanges.

As a high-profile research university, Siegen is home to several notable centres of investigation in fields such as particle physics, teacher training and gender studies, to name but a few.

Famous alumni from the University of Siegen include Siemens energy sector CEO Wolfgang Dehen, boxing champion Peter Hussing and the controversial film director Uwe Boll.

Siegen lies in the middle of the states of Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatin. The city lies in a picturesque setting of mountains, forests, rivers and valleys. It offers many of the pleasures most associated with old German towns, such as its castle, Oktoberfest beer festival and Christmas market. It is also, curiously, home to the world’s smallest museum of Beatles memorabilia.

The study of media studies at the University of Siegen is really recommendable - lots of practice, exciting courses and sympathetic lecturers. Campus life is currently slightly limited due to the renovation. Sometimes, however, the administration may be missing something. Basically, I can recommend the University of Siegen and especially my degree in Media Science with a minor in Media Management.
