European University Viadrina Frankfurt Germany

European University Viadrina Frankfurt is located at Frankfurt ( ODER ) in Brandenburg, Germany. It is also known as the University of Frankfurt ( ODER ). The city is in the oder River, which marks the border between Germany and Poland. With 5,200 students around 1,000 of whom come from Poland and some 160 teaching staff, the Viadrina is one of Germany’s smallest universities ( only the University of Erfurt and Jacobs University Bremen has fewer students ).

In 1811 the university of Frankfurt was moved at Breslau ( Wrocław ) and merged with the University of Breslau, the Lep0ldina, in order to be competitive with the newly founded University of Berlin. The old university building in Frankfurt was damaged in World War II and controversially demolished in the early 1960s.
