With the “forschen@studium” (engl.: “research@studies”) teaching profile, Oldenburg University strengthens the interconnections between teaching and research for students and lecturers. Besides accompanying research, evaluations, didactics and special university courses, the program’s core mission is to support research carried out actively by students.

The crucial pillars of a university are research and teaching. At the University of Oldenburg, our main goal is to intertwine these two very closely. The education profile forschen@studium is pursuing this goal by bringing and promoting independent and active student research.
The essence of academic education consists of thinking beyond the course contents from the very beginning; of questioning it and being active in shaping the research process. Research-based teaching and learning aims at promoting and further developing this particular form of teaching and learning, whose tradition is rooted at the European University.
The education profile forschen@studium is implemented and developed by a number of professors, lecturers, and other teaching staff, who enable their students to do research themselves. The initiative is supported through the project “Research-Based Learning in Focus Plus”, FLiF+ (“Forschungbasiertes Lernen im Fokus Plus”) financed by the Quality Pact for Teaching, as well as through the university’s own project “Research-Oriented Teaching Plus” - FoL+ (Forschungsorientierte Lehre plus”).
