The University has approximately 6,400 staff members, including 555 professors. Excellence in research has been established at the University of Bonn through the strategic recruitment of exceptional scientists in the last decades. As a consequence, the University of Bonn belongs to Germany’s leading universities.

The Master of European Studies - Governance and Regulation is a one-year postgraduate program, offered by the University of Bonn at the Center for European Integration Studies (ZEI).

ZEI’s research and teaching emphasis on “Governance and Regulation in the EU” brings together two aspects whose critical interplay shapes the European Union, its impact on citizens’ lives and its role globally. Interdisciplinary perspectives on the important relationship between governance and regulation offer greater insight and clarity into the increasingly complex process of European integration.
