Top Universities in Germany by State 2013/14

This follows the establishment of the national Excellence Initiative in 2005, a joint commission of the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the German Council of Science and Humanities.

The development of top universities in Germany

From 2007 to 2012, the Excellence Initiative Grants Committee provided €1.9 billion (US$2.56 billion) to 85 institutions, to strengthen research and enhance Germany’s visibility in the scientific community. A significant amount of that funding (up to €13.5 million or US$18.24 million each per year) went to nine institutions for proposed future concepts, and eight of those appear within the top 150 in the world this year.

A further €2.4 billion (US$3.25 billion) was approved last year for the second phase of the program. This will benefit a total of 99 institutions, including eleven universities selected for their future concepts. Six from the previous round have retained their funding, and five more have been added. All the institutions which receive funding enjoy enhanced status as an elite institution.

In addition, an alliance of nine technological universities called TU9 (Technische Universität 9) are known for excellence in research. These all have a high number of international students, with an average of 15% of students from outside Germany.

Here’s a quick overview of the top universities in Germany by state (known as Länder), based on the QS World University Rankings® 2013/14.

Europe's Failing Schools

Europe's Failing Schools
September 28, 2004
By Martin Walker
Across Europe, where the academic year starts later than in the United States, over 6 million students are this week packing their bags to attend or settling back into some 3,300 universities.
Some, a small handful, will be lucky, attending the ancient and venerable universities on which the reputation of higher education on the old continent still rests. Most will be attending institutions that are second or even third-rate. And many of those who will graduate with decent degrees and a sound education will soon leave Europe for the greater opportunities of the United States
