Julius-Maximilians Universität Würzburg

Julius-Maximilians Universität Würzburg Overview

The roots of the Julius Maximilian University of Würzburg reach back as far as 1402. In that era, it was the sixth institution of higher education to be founded in the German-speaking regions of Europe, after the Universities of Prague, Vienna, Heidelberg, Cologne, and Erfurt.

Many eminent scholars and scientists, 14 Nobel Laureates among them, have researched and taught in Würzburg. Rudolf Virchow, Carl Siebold, and Franz Brentano are in that number, as well as Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, who discovered the X-rays in Würzburg in 1895, or Klaus von Klitzing, discoverer of the Quantum-Hall Effect.

Today, Würzburg's University is counted among the medium-sized institutions of higher education in Germany. It comprises ten faculties with about 400 professors and 28,000 students.

Swansea University currently has agreements in place with Julius Maximilian University for the College of Arts and Humanities and the department of German.

Erasmus+ Grant - Approx €300 per month

This bursary amount is dependent on location, and can vary. It is available for UK students who decide to spend up to a year of their course in Europe in 2015-16 through the Erasmus+ programme. Students can receive grants of up to 300 euro per month for study, or up to 400 euro per month for student traineeships, depending on the country they go to. This grant is a contribution to the extra costs of studying abroad, which is why it varies by country.
