The Catholic University of Eichstaett-Ingolstadt (KU) is situated in the South of Germany, in Bavaria. The KU was founded in 1980, but both cities (Eichstätt and Ingolstadt) have a centuries-old university tradition going back to the 15th century. The quality of the teaching and research defines the success of the KU, with its more than 4,700 students and an important teaching and research staff (120 professors and 220 further university teachers). A high degree of internationalisation characterizes the KU, thanks to the many international contacts with other Universities and with a ratio of 1:10 of students coming from foreign countries. In Bavaria the KU collaborates strongly in the regional territorial development through an efficient action of research activities.
