Mission Statement

Cutting-edge research

As a research-oriented university, the WWU has made pioneering progress in numerous areas. Two Excellence Clusters, eight collaborative research centres (SFB), several research training groups and 27 research centres collectively advance inter- and transdisciplinary collaborative research and individual disciplinary research projects.

Promotion of junior researchers

The University of Münster actively supports its junior researchers as part of its academic personnel development strategy. Career counselling and funding opportunities, structured doctoral programmes and qualification measures provide candidates with a more transparent and plannable career path into academia.

Studying and teaching

The University of Münster is well-known for its large and distinguished faculties, such as Law and Medicine, but also for its so-called exotic subjects like Scandinavian Studies. The diverse and research-oriented course offerings attract several thousand students to Münster each year.

Diversity and equal opportunity

The University of Münster sees diversity as a strength that impacts all areas of university development and management. Appreciation and equal treatment of all employees and students regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, handicap, sexual orientation or religion are centrally important at the WWU.

Internationalisation

The University of Münster has concluded more than 550 partnership agreements with universities and academic institutes worldwide – from nearby Enschede in the Netherlands to Beijing, China. Some 3,600 foreign students and 700 distinguished visiting researchers currently study and research at the University of Münster.
