Note on statistics: Since a student can also pursue several studies, the total does not necessarily have to correspond to the individual lines.

Within the framework of internal university surveys, "Lehramt"-students (teacher education) are counted with the factor 0,5, because they are always studying two different teaching subjects. According to this method of counting, the total number of students is approx. 3,300 (average winter semester 2018/19 to wintersemester 2020/21).
