Other special featuresAt the Osnabrück Department of Geography, we attach particular importance to individual and intensive supervision of students in small learning groups, where this is still possible despite the increasing number of students, and qualified feedback for achievements. Relations between teachers and students and among students themselves are very cohesive. The faculty student council plays an important role in representing student interests and stimulating campus social life. We try to preserve our traditional ‘family’-type study environment in this way.
