University of Marburg

The Philipps University of Marburg was founded in 1527 by Philip I, Landgrave of Hesse, which makes it one of Germany's oldest universities and the oldest Protestant university in the world. It is now a public university of the state of Hesse, without religious affiliation. The University of Marburg has about 25,000 students and 7,500 employees, making Marburg, a town of 72,000 inhabitants, the proverbial "university town", with university buildings dotted in or around the centre. About 12% of the students are international, the highest percentage in Hesse. It offers an International summer university programme and has a lively ERASMUS programme.
