Main building on campus Ludwigsburg

Ludwigsburg University of Education is the largest of the six Universities of Education in Baden-Württemberg, with more than 5,000 students and over 450 members of staff. It moved to its current campus in 1966. The Universities of Education have the right to grant doctoral and post-doctoral degrees. They concentrate on educational science in research and teaching.
The Ludwigsburg University of Education (LUE) is a modern centre of excellence for educational sciences in four closely-related areas: school and pre-school education, extra-curricular education for children and teenagers, adult/further education as well as education in cultural and social areas.
The courses of study mainly cover Teacher Education for the different school types (primary schools, secondary schools, special schools and vocational schools). LUE is also increasing its participation, in co-operation with the University of Stuttgart, in Teacher Education for grammar schools. The Teacher Education programmes are research and theory based with a strong practical element.
In addition to these, the LUE also offers Bachelor and Master programmes. The special feature of the Bachelor programmes is the combination of educational science and subject related approaches linked to extra-curricular fields of education. In a wide range of Master programmes, students can specialise in specific professional or research areas. The Further Education Master courses are specially organised to enable part-time students to participate outside of working hours and lead to a qualification for management positions in the field of education.


Educational research is one of LUE’s main tasks and its research profile is shown through its specialisations in empirical teaching/learning research, research in school development and classroom research, all of which incorporate extensive practical components. The Ludwigsburg EU Research Centre for Baden-Württemberg’s Universities of Education offers its services to all six of these universities.
Ph.D. candidates are supported by experienced professors and may make use of a range of offers from the local research support centre. The Graduate Academy of all six universities is an additional source of support. After completion of their doctorate, candidates have opportunities for post-doctoral qualifications. Early on, students have the opportunity to engage in research-based learning and thus become familiar with different research methods.

Further Education

The Academy for Scientific Further Education (Akademie für wissenschaftliche Weiterbildung e.V.) on the campus of LUE also offers courses for teachers, interested persons and professionals and all professions who deal with pedagogical, methodological and psychological matters. These courses include, amongst others, qualification courses (contact classes and seminars), counselling courses (supervision, coaching, counselling in further education) and education courses/projects (counselling and/or training for company-specific qualifications).

International Activities

Ludwigsburg University of Education has a diverse range of international relations. The Academic International Office (Akademisches Auslandsamt) has close contacts to over 70 partner universities and is therefore able to offer a large number of students the chance to spend time abroad. Every year there are more than 190 foreign students studying at LUE. As a result of long-standing, close partnerships with international universities, scientific conferences and compact courses (e.g. summer school) are held regularly. LUE also has a successful programme for attracting international lecturers, entitled, „Bringing the World to Ludwigsburg”. Every semester several colleagues from international universities offer their courses at LUE.

City and Campus Life

Ludwigsburg University of Education has a diverse campus culture. Cultural highlights are a firmly-anchored part of the university events calendar. In addition to this, there is a student gallery with alternating exhibitions as well as a literature café which offers readings, concerts and poetry slams. The nearby Favoritepark is an oasis of relaxation.
The baroque city of Ludwigsburg, with its population of approx. 90,000, has not only magnificent castles to offer, but also lively pedestrian areas, cinemas and a colourful club scene. And for those of you who would like to take a look around the state capital - the suburban train from Ludwigsburg only takes a few minutes to reach downtown Stuttgart.
