1. Humboldt University
Humboldt University is one of Germany’s oldest universities. Unsurprisingly, it looks really old and Germanic.
2. Tokyo university of technology
3. Moscow State University
Fulfilling all of your stereotypes about Russia, Moscow State University is grand, gorgeous and slightly terrifying.
4. National School of Fine Arts, Paris
Otherwise known as the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. The institution owns more than 450,000 historical books and works of art (subtext: these guys are really, really rich).
5. University of Wroclaw
6. University of Bologna
The University of Bologna traces its foundation to 1088, making it the world’s oldest university. Fittingly, all of its buildings are redbrick AF.
7. University of Cape Town
Do you think anyone actually gets any studying done with that view in the background?
8. University of Otago
9. University of Toronto
10. Elon University

- Their former mascot was an angry quaker
- It looks seriously gorgeous in a sunset
11. University of Virginia
12. University of Coimbra
Portugal’s oldest university has enough gold leaf, fancy columns and cool paintings to put most British unis to shame.
13. Xiamen University
14. Trump University
