What is the university network?

In 1995, the largest universities in Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, and Thuringia agreed to collaborate to successfully pursue joint teaching projects and research projects. The collaboration within research has gained momentum and a joint mentoring programme for postgraduates supports early-career researchers. A large number of students take part in exchanges and in specific research projects at all three locations. Being able to choose from various focuses in the subjects available, students can tailor their studies according to their individual interests and objectives. Take a look at the options available beyond your home university. Courses being part of the collaboration provide interesting perspectives and can generally be recognized at your home university.
