StudyFields of Study
The degree programmes at Heidelberg University embrace the broad spectrum of subjects offered by a comprehensive university, with over 160 fields of study. The full spectrum of disciplines encompasses the humanities, law and the social sciences alongside the natural and life sciences, including medicine.
Concerning the education of young researchers, this unique range of the university creates an optimal setting for individualised and interdisciplinary studies. Students can acquire various degrees in undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.
Acceptance to a doctoral programme is contingent on candidates having previously completed a university degree programme. The doctoral examination is an academic examination which, if successfully completed, culminates in conferral of a doctorate.
The interdisciplinary competences enable students to acquire or complete personal and job-related competences.
Heidelberg University would like to enable students to study at their own pace. As a framework for this, we offer you the opportunity to study part-time.
If you would like to study for a short time at Heidelberg University without obtaining a degree, there is the possibility of a so-called short-term study. Short-term studies are only aimed at international students.
