Things you should know

Further qualification

Most study programmes focus on theoretical aspects of their discipline. As a result, your own specialization and acquiring competences beyond the contents of your programme are often neglected. Thinking outside the box often gives you the inside track for the application process.

The following seminars at our University are open to all interested students. Except for the language courses, prior knowledge is not required.
