The public research institution known as the University of Regensburg (German: Universität Regensburg) is situated in the UNESCO-designated historic city of Regensburg, Bavaria. On July 18, 1962, the university was established. The university is located south of Regensburg's inner city on a slight elevation south of the Danube River, right next to the Regensburg University of Applied Sciences, and next to the A 3 autobahn. It is wholly contained inside one central campus. The University of Regensburg educates more than 20,000 students and employs over 4,200 people, including 312 professors, in addition to the connected university hospital. The Natural Sciences (Mathematics, Physics, Bio-Sciences, Chemistry, and Pharmacy), the Humanities (History, Philology), and Medicine are important areas of study. The SFB 1085 "Higher Invariants - Interactions between Arithmetic Geometry and Global Analysis" of the Faculty of Mathematics and the CRC/Transregio 55 "Hadron Physics from Lattice QCD" of the Faculty of Physics are two collaborative research centers currently supported by the German Research Association (DFG), along with four research units and five interdisciplinary graduate colleges. More than 30 EU projects include the university. The institution offers a wide range of traditional study programs through its eleven faculties. One of the first German universities to implement modularized study programs based on the Bologna model was the university. Most study programs have been offering bachelor's and master's degrees since 2000. Doctoral degrees are also available in the majority of academic areas.
