More about Frankfurt am Main



Foreign-born residents





Frankfurt is home to just over 700,000 people, and over 2.3 million in the greater metropolitan area. Students form a big chunk of that population, with over 60,000 spread across 3 major universities. The city mixes economic vitality with culture, offering world-class events at Frankfurt Messe, as well as a number of museums.


Studying and Working in Frankfurt am Main

Frankfurt is one of the most popular destinations for overseas students in Germany, and the reason is simple. No other German city has such an international focus, with all three of Frankfurt's higher education institutions reaching out across the world.

Johann Wolfgang Goethe University is the largest, and is globally respected for social research. But both the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences and the School of Finance and Management also have strong reputations. All serve the financial sector, training management graduates, IT specialists and economists.

Frankfurt am Main Hauptwache

The city, in general, is a pleasant place to study, with the attractions of Museum Island, sports teams like Eintracht Frankfurt and the chance to explore distinctive Hessian cuisine all adding to the appeal.
