Become part of a great research tradition

Heidelberg is home to a rich tradition of research and education – particularly at Heidelberg University of Education. Heidelberg University of Education, which was founded in 1904 as an "Educational Institution for Elementary Teachers", plays an important role in maintaining the city's reputation as a hub of academic excellence.

The University has developed a profile as a research-focused institution which actively encourages and supports practice-oriented research. In both teaching and research, particular emphasis is placed on special needs education, aesthetic education, new media and didactic approaches in the field of natural sciences.

Our research is always conducted with teaching practice in mind. The steady increase in research activities and the corresponding allocation of external funding to our research staff illustrates the enormous value placed on research at the University.
