Converted from a teacher training college in 1990, the University of Koblenz-Landau is one of the youngest public institutions of higher learning in Germany. As the name would suggest, the university has two campuses in the cities of Koblenz and Landau which are 175 kilometers (108 miles) apart. Since its founding, the enrollment has tripled and both campuses are now host to over 13,000 students in total with each campus being home to about half. The university prides itself on practical research that can be used to respond to the demands of an ever changing business landscape.
Koblenz is the larger of the two partner cities with a population of over 110,000. It's history dates back more than 2,000 years. Because of its geographical location near two converging rivers, the city is home to a number of fortresses and strongholds, some of which are still standing today. Landau is a smaller city of around 42,000 residents, but is highly regarded for its vineyards and wine making.
