  • Special features regarding teaching
    The materials covered in lectures are supplemented in small-group exercises. Knowledge transfer is characterised by the use of interactive learning methods. Seminar-style teaching and case work, projects and excursions are considered very important. The interactive learning platforms also play an important role. Students are expected to participate actively, such as by way of presentations and self-directed learning.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Students can complete the study-integrated vocational work placement abroad in the fourth semester. The necessary preparation and planning process is supported by a specific course on the work placement abroad. Apart from university partnerships in Austria, Poland and Hungary, teachers of the programme maintain international contacts with Brazil and Russia.
