Module content:
This module takes place in the form of a block seminar. It is the students´ task to explain and discuss the topic of their thesis, the scientific and organizational procedures they are taking while writing it and the solutions/approaches to the problems presented in their thesis with their fellow students and the supervising professor.
In addition, they will be expected to give an overview of the experiences gained during their semester abroad. In addition to thematic and methodological topics, the colloquium will also deal with the students´ intercultural experiences. The exchange of experiences among the students and feedback to the faculty are of particular importance here.
