The University of Hamburg is a university in Hamburg, Germany. It was founded on 28 March 1919 by Wilhelm Stern and others. It grew out of the previous Allgemeines Vorlesungswesen and the Kolonialinstitut (Colonial Institute) as well as the Akademisches Gymnasium. In spite of its relatively short history, six Nobel Prize Winners and a number of internationally renowned scholars are affiliated to the University. The annual recruitment of about 7,000 freshmen contributes to the current total of 38,000 students, of which every year 3,500 reach graduations and of which 900 receive doctoral degrees. Students can choose from 120 different majors which are offered by six faculties.
