About us

Established on 4 November 1743 by Margrave Friedrich von Brandenburg-Bayreuth and expanded from 1769 by Margrave Alexander von Brandenburg-Ansbach and Brandenburg-Bayreuth, Friedrich-Alexander-Universität was transferred to the state of Bavaria in 1810.
Today, approximately 40,000 students study at our FAU campuses in Erlangen, Nuremberg and Fürth.

At an international level, FAU stands out as an innovative university founded on diversity with an outward-looking, international perspective.
Knowledge in motion is our university motto. It reminds us every day of the important and responsible role a university has in society. Three key values guide how we think and act at FAU: Innovation, diversity and passion.
