Master’s studies

We welcome Indian students!

We have over 4,000 international students on campus studying for a PhD, a Master’s or Bachelor’s degree or spending a semester here as exchange students.

In 2016 we had applications from 163 different countries. Since the nationality of our students is not registered in our systems we don’t know how many Indian students we currently have. However, we do know that in 2016 we had 467 applicants from India for our Master’s programmes. This puts India on the 5th place on that list.
