UGA Exchange, Friedrich-Alexander Universitaet (Erlangen & Nuremburg)

Founded in 1743, FAU has a rich history. It is a strong research university with an international perspective and one of the largest universities in Germany, with around 39,628 students, 244 degree programmes, 4,000 academic staff (including over 580 professors), 171 million euros (2013) third-party funding, and 500 partnerships with universities all over the world. Teaching at the University is closely linked to research and focuses on training students in both theory and practice to enable them to think critically and work independently. The research itself also strikes the perfect balance between a theoretical approach and practical application.

Program Location

friedrich-alexander-erlangen 2FAU’s two main sites, the cities of Erlangen and Nuremberg, are located at the heart of the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region. Both Erlangen with its 100,000 inhabitants, former home of the Huguenots and a key location for Siemens, and Nuremberg, a city with a population of half a million and a metropolitan flair, have their own unique charms. The opera, theatre and museums, along with a lively pub scene and night life, offer plenty of opportunities to relax after a day in the lecture theatre, lab or library.
