Founded in 1991, the University of Potsdam is a modern and dynamic institution thoroughly focused on innovative teaching and research. With more than 20,000 students, it is the biggest university in the federal state of Brandenburg. The University of Potsdam offers a broad range of highly competitive bachelor’s, master’s, and Ph.D. programs in the fields of the arts and humanities, economics and social sciences, law, natural sciences, and digital engineering. Our students and researchers enjoy access to first class laboratory and library facilities and state-of-the-art equipment. We currently offer 21 master’s degree programs in English, many of which have an innovative interdisciplinary focus. As a publicly funded institution we do not charge any tuition fees. Situated in a region with more than 40 research institutions, the University closely cooperates with numerous organizations of international acclaim, among them several renowned Max Planck-, Leibnitz-, Helmholtz-, and Fraunhofer- research institutions. The University of Potsdam has an excellent track record with supporting young entrepreneurs, and its students profit from close networks with regional industry. The University of Potsdam is one of the most beautifully situated universities in Germany. The city’s palaces and enchanting parks form one of Germany’s biggest UNESCO World Heritage sites.

This university is excellent as I have grown tremendously in my thinking process by taking all the research oriented seminars that are held here. Personal attention by professors towards your academic growth is also a plus at this university.

The university of Potsdam has a nicely located campus. The administration building is situated in a castle that is a part of UNESCO World Heritage. The studies are divided into compulsory and selective courses. They are interesting, show students new way of thinking, broaden their horizons and are taught by open-minded professors. They are helpful and for sure not narrow-minded. Topics they choose to talk about during lectures and the ways of thinking they try to show students are innovatory and interesting. Professors do not criticize, they show the path. Each student has always a possibility to choose the theme he is interested in. There is a quite large scale. It is a pity that sometimes there are more students than the spots offered in course. So you should compete with another students by doing the additional tasks from professor, what should not be! Maybe I would like to see more newest technologies to support the studying process. A little bit complicated as well to fulfill all the requirements of studying program: one should visit lectures and seminars, do the projects, write assignments, do the tasks (sometimes very extensive!) for seminars, which not always corresponds the real possibility of having time for ALL this almost at he same time. Sometimes one receives a little amount of credits for a very big amount of job done. Of job and imagination used. But the connection with Berlin is perfect and food in Mensa is so cheap!
