organisation profile

Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf is one of the younger higher education institutions in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia – founded in 1965. Since 1988 our university has carried the name of one of the city’s finest sons. Today around 25,000 students study at a modern campus under conditions ideally suited to academic life.

 

As a campus university where everything is close together, all buildings including the University Hospital and the specialised libraries are easily reachable. The university departments enjoy an excellent reputation due to an exceptionally high number of collaborative research centres. Moreover, the state capital Düsseldorf provides an attractive environment with a high quality of life.

 

The Heinrich Heine University (HHU) is divided up into five faculties which are all located on one campus. The oldest one and core of the university is the Faculty of Medicine, followed by the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences and the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. In the late 1980s and early 1990s the Faculty of Business and Economics and the Faculty of Law were then launched.

 

One of the foci today, linking all faculties, are the Life Sciences. Cross-departmental, joint study programmes (such as Business Chemistry) are one of the major strengths.
