Support for foundersSequence "Unternehmensgründung" as a regular event in the Geographical Colloquium as well as part of a course in the Master's degree course "Economic and Social Geography"; cooperation with Transfer and Innovation Management of the Osnabrück Universities.
Other special featuresAt Osnabrück Geography, we place particular emphasis on individual and intensive supervision of students in small learning groups, where this is still possible in view of increasing student numbers, and on qualified feedback for achievements. Relations between teachers and students and among students themselves are very cohesive. The departmental student organisation plays an important role in representing student interests and stimulating the social life at the institute. In this way, we try to maintain our traditionally "family" study atmosphere.
