Special features regarding teachingResearch Project degree. All courses of study include 2 mandatory projects of 12 or 18 ECTS, which are usually carried out in teams of 2-6 students, supervised by staff, tutors and professors in the context of current research topics. Many projects result in publications. Several projects are interdisciplinary (e.g. with students from product design, architecture, media design). The projects promote independence and the ability to work in a team as well as self-organisation and are rated by graduates as an essential part of their studies.

Support for foundersSince 2001, the neudeli start-up workshop has been the central contact point for students, graduates and employees of all four faculties of the university who are interested in starting a business. It advises, coaches and offers mentoring for start-up teams and supports applications for funding, in particular for EXIST start-up grants. In 2011, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, together with Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, received the award "EXIST-Gründerkultur - Die Gründerhochschule" (EXIST Start-up Culture - The Start-up University) and has since been funded by the BMWi to establish a start-up culture on a sustainable basis at both locations.

A native English speaker on the faculty offers "Academic English" courses. Alternatively, courses can be taken at the Language Centre. There is the welcome service of the International Office as well as individual counselling by the "Counselling Office" of the Faculty of Media. There is a student tutor who answers questions and helps with administrative matters and questions about studying. Some advanced courses in the Bachelor and many projects take place in English.
