    University of Duisburg-Essen


Since 2007, the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund University and the University of Duisburg-Essen have been working in close strategic cooperation in the University Alliance Ruhr (UA Ruhr). Together, the partner universities initiate numerous cooperative ventures and offer their 100,000 or so students a particularly wide range of courses. At the same time, the individual UA Ruhr universities are developing complementary research focal areas so as to enhance their profiles and make them even more productive and attractive. By following this strategy of cooperation and competition, the University Alliance serves as a role model for the Ruhr, a former coal- and steel-producing region that is growing together and becoming one of the most interesting places for science and culture in Germany.

The UA Ruhr accepts successful graduates of the Studienbrücke programme from the Eastern
Europe/Central Asia region, and from the USA, Vietnam and South America.
