Life at UMR

Welcome to Philipps-Universität Marburg!

At Philipps-Universität Marburg, we’ve been welcoming international students and scholars for over 500 years. You’ll find us in the beautiful medieval town of Marburg, along the German fairytale route in the state of Hessen. Here, the tradition and history of your surroundings will enchant and inspire you, and our friendly small-city spirit will make you feel at home as soon as you’ve arrived.

Whether you come to us as a student, a doctoral candidate, researcher, or as an exchange teacher or administrator, great opportunities await you in Marburg. You’ll be walking in the footsteps of great minds like Emil von Behring, the world’s first Nobel Prize winner; world-renowned chemist Robert Bunsen; and the Grimm brothers, whose stories have travelled from Hessen to the furthest corners of the globe. As the saying goes: other cities have a university – Marburg is a university.
