Global thinking, interdisciplinary research: the spirit of Leibniz!
Originally established as a Higher Trade School in 1831, the former “Universität Hannover” was renamed Leibniz University Hannover (LUH) in 2006. Today, almost 29,000 students are enrolled at the university. With 85 degree programmes, Leibniz University Hannover covers a comprehensive range of disciplines, including natural sciences, engineering, humanities, social sciences, teacher training, economics and law. Interdisciplinary and international key research areas in biomedicine, production engineering, quantum optics, gravitational physics, optical technologies and interdisciplinary studies of science are constantly expanded. Through numerous international networks and exchange programmes, as well as collaborations and events with businesses, Leibniz University Hannover provides many opportunities in the fields of internationalisation and transfer into the industry. LUH is successfully represented in the Excellence Strategy of the federal and state governments. The Clusters of Excellence PhoenixD and QuantumFrontiers are led by LUH; Hearing4all is a joint project of Carl von Ossietzky University in Oldenburg, Hannover Medical School and LUH as a co-applicant.
The cooperation for the Stellenticket portal of Leibniz University Hannover is coordinated by the Career Service of the Centre for Quality Enhancement in Teaching and Learning (ZQS). The Career Service promotes the employability of students as well as exchange with professional practice during their studies and assists students with their career development – from the beginning of their studies until entry into professional life.
