Saarbrücken


The state capital of Saarland is located at the heart of the European Union, and is closely connected to its European neighbors France and Luxembourg, holding a position as both a trade and exhibition center beyond its city and county borders. Cinemas, museums, theaters, concerts, opera, ballet – Saarbrücken certainly has something to offer on many levels. Annual artistic highlights include festivals such as the film festival “Max Ophüls Preis“ and the festival “Perspectives“.


Furthermore, galleries and museums open their doors to the interested visitor throughout the year. Culinary festivals also attract many visitors. Highlights are the “Primeur-Weinfest“, a wine festival, and the “Altstadtfest“, a festival in the historical part of the town with culinary specialties, live music and events. Saarbrücken҆s castle is also well worth a visit with its terraces that enable an amazing view of the City.

University of the Greater Region


Saarland University is, together with the universities of Liège,  Luxembourg,  Lorraine, Kaiserslautern  and  Trier, part  of  the  "University  of  the  Greater  Region"

Saarland, Lorraine, Luxembourg, Wallonia and Rhineland-Palatinate are in a joint academic "area" where mobility between universities is a matter of course, and diplomas carry the official seal of the Greater Region.

More information on the University of the Greater Region can be found on www.uni-gr.eu/en

The project "University of the Greater Region" wants to enable students to study across borders – something that is most definitely an advantage on the European and international job market.
