4.3 Facilities in Freiburg


    The Albert-Ludwig University of Freiburg was founded in 1457 as a classical comprehensive university, making it one of the oldest higher education institutions in Germany. Successful in the Excellence Initiative, the university also boasts an illustrious history with numerous Nobel Prize recipients. Over 21,000 students, 150 degree programs, and more than 5,000 employees are working at the Albert-Ludwigs-University. The university is divided into 11 faculties, 18 research centers, and numerous central service departments. Whereas the faculties organize and coordinate instruction and research for related fields of study, the research centers function as a platform for research projects spanning several faculties or disciplines. The central service departments provide university-wide services and thus provide the infrastructural framework for university operations in general.
