Overview

University of Münster

University of Münster (WWU) is a public research university in Münster, Germany. It was founded in 1780 with roots from the Münster’s Jesuit College. It underwent temporary closure due to financial problems and had several name changes before having its present name in 1907. The fifth-largest higher education institution in Germany, the University of Münster is popular for its high-quality teaching, excellent research activities, and rich academic tradition.
