The University of Kassel is a young, modern, and lively university with a unique profile in natural sciences, engineering, culture, and society. The University of Kassel is uniquely focused on environmentally related education and research. This is reflected in the university's more than 60 study sectors related to environmental issues.
It's located in the "boom town" Kassel, which combines urban culture and pure nature — museums, art, culture, sports, leisure activities, mountains, lakes, and forests as far as the eye can see. At the same time, Kassel is well-connected to Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, and the Rhine and Ruhr regions. Kassel is home to approximately 200,000 people and looks back on more than a thousand years of history as the former capital of "Hessen-Kassel". Today Kassel is a vibrant, young town with a rich heritage.
