ABOUT LMU

Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München is one of the leading research universities in Europe. Since its founding in 1472, it has been committed to the highest international standards of excellence in research and teaching.

LMU Munich now has some 750 faculty and more than 4,000 academic staff members, who pursue research and provide tuition for the University’s undergraduate and graduate students. The University’s 18 faculties cover the whole range of contemporary scholarship, encompassing humanities and cultural studies, law, economics and social sciences, medicine and the natural sciences.

As a genuine universitas, LMU observes the highest standards in research and teaching, and strives to find solutions to the problems facing us in the areas of society, culture, environment, technology and health. The University is committed to providing an education that imparts both technical competence and social skills, and instills a lively awareness of history and respect for human values. In this spirit, LMU upholds the legacy of the White Rose movement, a group of LMU students who actively resisted Nazi ideology during the Second World War.
