Special features regarding teachingThe possibility of combining teacher training with a BA offers a high degree of organisational flexibility and specialisations. The advantage of studying at a small university in Eichstätt is that the classes are small compared with larger universities. This means that students' individual teaching and learning behaviour can be better taken into account. This means a high student-teacher ratio which benefits students writing their final dissertations.

Other special featuresWhile studying German studies at larger universities is often quite anonymous, German studies at Eichstätt is a small department despite the university's size. Students quickly make contacts, and most students very much identify with their subject. This creates an excellent study atmosphere, which is also reflected in the very good tutor-student ratio.
