The Humboldt-Year begins in the sixth semester – just the right time when good students feel the compelling urge to finally do something entirely on their own: the Humboldt-Year is a self-selected, specialising, individualising research orientation in consultation with a research chair or with a research alliance with the ZU either in the country or abroad.
Within the Humboldt-Year and thus in an advanced period of study, students have the opportunity to set their own scientific focus and to design their further studies in an individual way. They can pursue their own research interests and thereby deepen certain topics and acquire additional scientific skills. They can either apply for a research project of the chairs or develop own ideas for a research project.
The strong connection to the research work of a university chair or another research institution facilitates the in-depth insights into scientific practice
