The University of Passau provides world-class education through the internationally-oriented range of degree programmes offered by its four faculties:
- The Faculty of Law
- The Faculty of Business, Economics and Information Systems
- The Faculty of Arts and Humanities with the Department of Catholic Theology
- The Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics
At the start of the winter semester 2009, the Faculty of Catholic Theology became a Department and was integrated into the Faculty of Arts and Humanities on the basis of an agreement between the State of Bavaria and the Holy See.
The Language Centre offers students the possibility to learn one or more foreign languages in conventional language courses or as part of a special subject-specific language programme tailored to their respective degree programmes. The languages offered include European languages and more exotic fare, such as Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese and Indonesia.
The University Library holds a vast range of academic literature and journals. And if you need something that isn't available on-site, you can always borrow it by inter-library loan.
The Centre for Careers and Competencies supports students in their own personal and professional development at all stages of their career planning: use the Competency Navigator to test your skills and abilities, attend competency seminars and computer courses or get advice on how to find internships or other jobs and get help finding prospective employers.
At the University of Passau you don't have to be a sports student to get fit! Staff and students alike are free to use the Sports Centre facilities and participate in the vast range of different sports courses offered.
The Student Services Association, 'Studentenwerk' in German, is responsible for the day-to-day running of the refectory and cafeterias, halls of residence, as well as giving welfare advice, supporting cultural events and advising on student loans and grants.
