European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder)

The Viadrina builds bridges – not only across the River Oder by forming numerous intensive partnerships with universities and institutes in Poland but also by reaching out beyond our region to Central and Eastern Europe as well as to France.


Since the reopening of the Viadrina in 1991, the European University has developed into an internationally renowned address on the German-Polish border, with approximately 6,000 students now enrolled.


One may complete about 20 different international double degrees at the Bachelor or Master level at the Viadrina. A good example of this is the Master of European Studies program, designed and maintained by all three Viadrina faculties, which may also be completed with a German-Polish or German-French double degree.


The Career Center at the European University Viadrina helps students to get acquainted with all the requirements for their future professional life.
