We appreciate the interest of prospective students of our field of study. A course in geosciences or bio-geosciences within the field of hydrogeology offers the possibility to acquire a broad spectrum of qualifications and also interesting, diversified and attractive career opportunities. It is certainly worthwhile to drop in and get a taste for the life at the university, for example as guest student or trainee. Students, parents and teachers have the unique opportunity to experience geological subjects under the lead of professors of the institute of geosciences within the initiative.

Currently, our lectures de are held in German language.
