Since 1833 With its 28,000 enrolled students, the University of Zurich (UZH) is Switzerland's largest university. Founded in the year 1833, UZH was Europe's first university to be established by a democratic political system; today, UZH is one of the foremost universities in the German-speaking world. Made up of seven faculties covering some 100 different subject areas, the University offers a wide variety of Bachelor's, Masters and Ph.D. programs. In addition, UZH's continuing education programs offer excellent learning opportunities.

In 2017, the University of Zurich became a member of the Universitas 21 (U21) network, a global network of 27 research universities from around the world, promoting research collaboration and exchange of knowledge. Numerous distinctions highlight the University's international renown in the fields of medicine, immunology, genetics, neuroscience, and structural biology as well as in economics. To date, the Nobel Prize has been conferred on twelve UZH scholars.
