Structure of Studying
In Europe the Bachelor's degree is the first academic degree, which students at universities can attain as the conclusion of scientific training. It was introduced in the context of the Bologna process, whose goal is the standardization of the European final exams. A deeper understanding can then subsequently be achieved by studying a master’s degree course.
Foreign students usually study a little longer than German students.
We differentiate between lectures, exercises and seminars.
In the lecture the lecturer explains the theory to a certain topic. These theories can be discussed in the seminars in smaller groups. In the exercise the theoretical material obtained in the lecture is deepened on the basis of practical tasks.
