  • Special features regarding teaching
    Teaching is linked to everyday problems and offers a high degree of relevance to the labour market. Innovative teaching formats addressing different competencies with a high degree of practical relevance (e.g. blended learning, flipped classroom, integration of external students, use of digital offerings) ensure a varied course of study. The very good student-teacher ratio allows targeted individual support, especially by certified teaching staff in the university area. German and international excursions provide a comparative view of spatial phenomena in specific areas.
