Archive: Ideas Competitions


The University initiates an Ideas Competion for Students once a year in order to sustainably increase and secure academic quality.
The focus is on the participation of students who are asked to submit their ideas for variable subjects. In this way students can actively help shape study conditions.
The results of previous competitions you can find them below and also in the archives (on the right side of this page).

If you have any questions, suggestions or critic do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to receive your proposals.
