We welcome students from Pakistan!

We have over 4,000 international students on campus studying for a PhD, a Master’s or Bachelor’s degree or spending a semester here as exchange students.

In 2018 we had applications from 162 different countries. Since the nationality of our students is not registered in our systems we don’t know how many Pakistani students we currently have. However, we do know that in 2018 we had 743 applicants from Pakistan for our Master’s programmes. This puts Pakistan on the 3rd place on that list.
