Projects and Master Theses
Students who only want to do a thesis/project at Ulm University do not need proficiency in German, as long as they have sufficient command of English (min. B1).
Time and duration for thesis / projects can be arranged outside regular semester dates (see: individual periods).
If you plan to do a thesis/project during your mobility at Ulm University, you should find out about the ongoing research in our faculties, departments and institutes in your field of interest. Our student advisor's can give you some directions for your search. However, you should not come to Ulm with any predefined topic and expect to find a supervisor for that particular topic.
We will grant max. 5 ECTS per month for thesis / project work, if this is the only activitiy in that time. If a thesis/project is combined with other courses, you can earn max. 30 ECTS per semester in total.
Examples: If you are going to stay for one full semester (6 months) and take several courses for a total of 12 ECTS credits, your thesis can be max. 18 ECTS credits. If you are going to stay for four months and only do your project, you can earn max. 20 credits for it.
