Programm Übersicht

An international Programme in Germany for Erasmus+ exchange students

The programme contains a divers and multidisciplinary set of compulsory and elective modules. So the student can select the modules that fit best to his or her personal interest and academic emphasis. The programme starts off with an introduction week on the Island of Spiekeroog in the midst of the Wadden Sea to welcome the students directly to this unique ecosystem (compulsory 6 ECTS). This is followed by a module providing all the background information students need to understand the Wadden Sea ecosystem (compulsory 6 ECTS). Then, students are free to build their own curriculum choosing up to three modules (up to 18 ECTS) of a module selection covering the areas of microbiology, biodiversity and ecosystem management. The students will benefit from inspiring lectures, participating seminars, and hands on experience during field work and experiments, as well as from the modern research and teaching infrastructure, and our team of competent scientists.
