Goethe University Frankfurt am Main
Frankfurt University is a lively, urban, and cosmopolitan university that provides an excellent atmosphere in which to research, study, think, and create. The university was founded in 1914 through private funding. Thus, the university owes its establishment to the link – which is characteristic for the city of Frankfurt – between dynamic research, the legacy of the Enlightenment, and the conscious commitment of the citizens of Frankfurt to the fundamentals of international trade and industry.
As one of the major institutions of higher education in Germany, the university is committed to providing a wide spectrum of disciplines in research and teaching, generating outstanding achievements, and to breaking new ground through the targeted utilization of the advantages and synergies of interdisciplinary work in research and teaching. In competition with the best national and international universities, Frankfurt University aims to fulfil its training and educational mandates through performance and open-mindedness. The university supports the practical application of knowledge-based upon solid fundamental research.
Frankfurt University is, and will always aim to be:
- Urban and open-minded
- Cosmopolitan and international
- Effective and efficient
- Strong in research
- A vital partner in the Frankfurt-Rhine-Main metropolitan area
