Founded in November 1948, Saarland University was originally established as a bilingual university that combined French and German educational traditions while offering a unique European perspective.
Informatics, nanotechnology, biosciences and Europe are the key disciplines that are shaping the universitys profile. The outstanding reputation of the Department of Informatics was underscored in the national academic excellence initiative, and the numerous internationally recognized, externally funded research projects across all fields of academic study highlight the quality of the academic work being performed at Saarland University.
The university has developed an outstanding profile in new technologies such as informatics, the biosciences or nanotechnologies a fact that has led to the establishment of numerous spin-off companies now active on and around campus. These developments highlight the universitys role as one of the largest employers in the region and its importance in promoting the transfer of technology and knowledge to the entire Saar-Lor-Lux region.
Saarland University offers a comprehensive support package for students preparing to start their careers or aiming to set up their own businesses. Guided by the Contact Centre for Technology Transfer (KWT), students can develop their business ideas, formally register their business ventures and learn to take their first steps as independent entrepreneurs. The jUNIts training scheme for young entrepreneurs offers students the possibility to work on project assignments on behalf of local and regional companies.
The Central Student Advisory Service (Study Counselling Centre) is the first port of call for all those with questions about their chosen or proposed academic programme, or who need to know more about student financing or who would like to discuss general study-related issues.

Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
I like the fact of having a chance to study at the same time in my home country (France) and abroad (Germany). It helped a lot to improve some skills such as my German language, and it offered me an intercultural experience.
The university offers a lot of courses. There are a lot of research institutes you can work with. The cost of living in Saarland is moderate, but the city is rather boring.
I liked very much the courses I've attended and the teaching methods. Teachers where very kind and ready to help every student (local or hosted) and to support him from the start to the end of courses.
