  • Special features regarding teaching
    In addition to a well-founded scientific knowledge of the subject, we also provide students with a broad knowledge of the subject. We teach the students the necessary skills to work on relevant research issues (wide range of elective subjects, differentiated specialisation through special modules). As a scientific partner of the competitive sports, we support top athletes, associations and societies through special guidance programmes, diagnostic performance tests and research results. We educate teachers to prepare them adequately for the challenges brought with heterogeneous school groups (inclusion) and to fill pupils with enthusiasm for exercise and sport.
