Cosmopolitan, collaborative and modern – at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU), established in 1965 following conversion of the preceding Medical Academy, we conduct interdisciplinary research together in a spirit of trust. Our green campus, much of which enjoys listed status, is home to disciplines from the fields of natural sciences, law, medicine, economics, social sciences and humanities.
Around 34,000 inquisitive and enthusiastic students from over 100 countries are enrolled in more than 80 study programmes. They value the outstanding education and inspiring environment of the state capital of North Rhine-Westphalia.
In the spirit of Heinrich Heine, namesake of our young University, researchers and students constantly challenge established assumptions and beliefs together with external partners and beyond cultural and national borders. True to the motto “Creating knowledge. Sharing knowledge” and as a “Citizens’ University”, HHU communicates its knowledge to various areas of society and in turn integrates impulses from society into research and teaching.
