Leu­pha­na Uni­ver­si­ty of Lüne­burg

Leu­pha­na is a young uni­ver­si­ty that lays em­pha­sis on in­no­va­ti­on, ra­ther than tra­di­ti­on. It is con­ti­nuous­ly as­pi­ring to crea­te a space sti­mu­la­ted by a collec­tive se­arch for know­ledge and sustainable so­lu­ti­ons.

This is al­re­a­dy true of its cour­ses of stu­dies. Leu­pha­na es­ta­blis­hed Ger­ma­ny’s first pu­blic col­le­ge. Its Gra­dua­te School mer­ges the aca­de­mic de­man­ds of mas­ters and doc­to­ra­tes, and its own Pro­fes­sio­nal School of­fers high­ly re­gar­ded fur­ther edu­ca­ti­on pro­gram­mes.

Every cour­se of stu­dy is built on a ho­lis­tic ap­proach. Not sub­jects, but so­ci­al­ly re­le­vant is­su­es oc­cu­py the fo­re­ground. This me­ans en­ga­ging in the dif­fe­rent sci­en­ti­fic ap­proa­ches from day one.

Leu­pha­na’s four sci­en­ti­fic in­itia­ti­ves make it pos­si­ble to in­cor­po­ra­te sound spe­cia­list know­ledge into a more ge­ne­ral hig­her edu­ca­ti­on dis­cour­se, and enable the uni­ver­si­ty to car­ry out re­se­arch on is­su­es – ra­ther than di­sci­pli­nes. In­vol­ving non-uni­ver­si­ty prac­tical ex­pe­ri­ence from the out­set is an im­portant part of our aca­de­mic cul­tu­re.

The cour­se of stu­dies at Leu­pha­na is ba­sed on a de­gree mo­del that has re­cei­ved mul­ti­ple awards and is the only one of its kind in Ger­ma­ny. The­re are three schools at Leu­pha­na. Each or­ga­ni­zes and pro­vi­des gui­dance for spe­cial ma­jor pro­grams that clo­se­ly fit you and your nee­ds.

In­no­va­ti­ve teaching for­mats with small se­mi­nar groups, a strong fo­cus on re­se­arch and on­go­ing, cri­ti­cal in­ter­ac­tion in in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ry re­se­arch and prac­tical pro­jects are the core as­pects and com­mit­ments of Leu­pha­na Gra­dua­te School. Clo­se links bet­ween the Mas­ters pro­gram­mes and doc­to­ral re­se­arch groups enable ear­ly ac­cess to the sci­en­ti­fic com­mu­ni­ty of doc­to­ral can­di­da­tes and en­su­re that Mas­ters at Leu­pha­na have a struc­tu­red and com­pre­hen­si­ve re­se­arch fo­cus.

Leu­pha­na’s cam­pus is a bust­ling place whe­re uni­ver­si­ty mem­bers come to­ge­ther for a wide ran­ge of ac­tivi­ties to de­ve­lop their skills – whi­le stu­dy­ing, teaching, working, at sports, at cul­tu­ral events, in mee­ting and com­mu­ni­ca­ting, or to par­ti­ci­pa­te in one of the many in­itia­ti­ves.

The city's sur­roun­dings are char­ming: If you are loo­king for re­la­xa­ti­on, you can take the train to the Bal­tic Sea or the Lüne­bur­ger Hei­de.  And if you want to spend an eve­ning or weekend en­joy­ing big city ex­ci­te­ment, then you have a wide selec­tion: Ham­burg, the me­tro­po­lis on the Elbe, can be re­ached in just half an hour, Han­no­ver is an hour away, and Ber­lin is less than three hours by train.
