Seminars and Courses

Each semester, we offer seminars and courses covering a wide range of topics. Evidence of academic achievement  (ECTS) for seminars will be a scientific presentation. The language of presentation can be English or German. For Courses evidence of academic achievement  (ECTS) might be an examination.

Usually, the actual titles and topics for the seminars will be decided only shortly before the start of any given semester. But we regularly offer seminars and courses in the following fields (you can use these generic titles when preparing your learning agreement):

*Note: The language of seminars and courses can vary (GE = German; EN = English) and depend on the lecturer.

Lab Courses

Places in lab courses, in which students conduct their own experiments, are limited. Priority is given to students who are enrolled in full-degree studies at Ulm University. You may list lab courses on your Learning Agreements, but you should be prepared that you may not get a place in one of those courses.

Lab Safety

Students usually have to attend a safety briefing prior to the start of a lab course. In case there should be serious doubts that a student will be able to respond to instructions due to poor linguistic competence and/or academic preparation, participation in the lab may be denied in order to avoid hazards.
