Since the beginning of the 15th century, Rostocks city centre has been characterised by its university, with which the likes of Albert Einstein, Max Planck and Heinrich Schliemann can be associated. With eight faculties, the University of Rostock is among the German universities with the widest range of programmes offered. Approximately 13,000 students are currently enrolled. There are an additional 450 students at the Academy of Music and Theatre, stimulating the cultural life of the city.
