Each semester, we offer seminars covering a wide range of topics. Instead of an exam, students have to investigate an assigned topic and give a scientific presentation, which will be graded. The language of presentation can be English or German.

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 in the following fields (you can use these generic titles when preparing your learning agreement):

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.
