In 1527, Landgrave Philip the Magnanimous of Hesse founded the first Protestant university in the world in Marburg, which still exists today. It has been named after its founder since the early 20th century.
At Philipps University, people with different ideas of good teaching come together in very different contexts. It is clear that the perspective on teaching is subject to constant change.
Our goal as an institution is to give teachers and learners the space and framework they need to implement and develop their ideas about good teaching.
Advances in knowledge arise from outstanding achievements in the individual sciences. They form the basis for the interaction and the mutual thematic and methodical fertilization of subjects and specialist cultures. Research is then bundled in interdisciplinary collaborations - within the Philipps University, with partners in the region and worldwide.
Studying is a new phase in life. This includes many questions. You can find answers to questions before and during your studies at the numerous advisory institutions at Philipps University. The Marburger Studientelefon (Stud-i-fon) offers quick initial information and mediation to the special advisory services, which range from general study advice to advice in departments to student study advice.
As in many traditional university cities, free living space is rather scarce in Marburg. You should therefore consider various types of accommodation when looking for accommodation, for example dormitories, rooms or shared apartments. By the way, the shared flat is the most frequently chosen form of living in Marburg.
he Living Library is a concept that works on the principle of a traditional lending library. People can borrow a book, read it, return it after a certain time and borrow a new one. However, the Living Library is not material books, but people who are available for a discussion with or without a specific topic, with the overarching goal of questioning and reducing prejudices.
The University Computer Center is the central facility of the University of Information Processing and Communication Technology (ICT). The HRZ provides ICT services to students, staff and partners of the university and operates the university's ICT infrastructure .
In order to master the studies well, the general conditions outside the lectures have to be right. For example, the cafeteria menu is one of the most requested information outside teaching. At the beginning of the study, leisure and cultural initiatives can help to gain a foothold in Marburg. And solid student financing is part of the basis for learning.
