Ruhr-University Bochum

Located in the midst of the dynamic, hospitable metropolitan area of the Ruhr, in the heart of Europe, Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB) with its 20 faculties is home to 5,000 employees and over 36,500 students from 130 countries. All the great scientific disciplines are united on one compact campus.   

The RUB is on its way to becoming one of the leading European universities of the 21st century. Almost all courses are offered as Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs that enable “learning through research”. Our excellent programs have made themselves an international name: Our Research School is an international college for structured doctoral research in the life sciences, natural sciences, engineering, the humanities and social sciences. Interfaculty and interdisciplinary Research Departments, which are mutually and internationally networked, sharpen the profile of the RUB. Added to this is an unsurpassed program for the promotion of Early Career Researchers, and an excellent infrastructure.  

What makes it all come alive is the people who meet on campus with their thirst for knowledge, their curiosity, and their commitment. They help shape the RUB and their open-mindedness makes the RUB an attractive place for people from around the world.
