Special features regarding teachingIn teaching, there is close communication between teaching staff and students, between sports practice and theory and between all teaching and research areas, which ensures the best possible transfer of knowledge for students, including with respect to the relevant fields of school sports as well as competitive sports, leisure sport and health-centred sport.
Special features regarding the international orientationIn 2017, the faculty hosted the world’s largest international congress for sports science (ECSS Congress Metropolis Ruhr) with almost 3,000 participants. Students were involved in the organisation in a variety of ways (in particular sports management), gained experience as volunteers and had the opportunity to present their own research results to the international specialist community. Starting with the 2018/2019 winter semester, the English-language MA programme ‘Sport, Exercise & Health Sciences’ will be offered, leading to a significant internationalisation of the entire faculty.

The academic programmes are available to students from all over the world. The new M.Sc. in English will especially help to increase diversity. A colleague from Australia currently holds one of the research associate posts. An Iranian refugee with a background in sports science has also received a 3-year employment contract with the support of the RUB Centre. A transgender student has written a paper on the gender issue.
Other special featuresAt regular intervals, national and international conferences and congresses are organised at the Faculty of Sports Science. Among other things, the world’s largest sports science congress 2017 was organised under the umbrella of the European College of Sports Science (ECSS) by the Faculty together with the sports science institutions of the TU Dortmund and University of Duisburg/Essen (‘Sport Science in a Metropolitan Area’). There is traditionally an excellent relationship between the students and the teachers as well as the other members of the faculty.
