Best teaching and study conditions
A record number of approximately 46,500 students enrolled at Goethe University for the winter semester 2014/2015. This makes the university not only the largest in Hesse but also one of the three largest in the whole of Germany. The government goal of over 50 percent of school leavers entering university on leaving school, the double final school-leaving years (Years 12 and 13) and the suspension of military service have all resulted in a 40 percent increase in the number of students since 2007. The number of school leavers enrolling in their first study semester has in fact doubled over this period.
