6.2.1 Lectures | Vorlesungen

During a lecture, the classic teaching format at university, a professor or lecturer presents the subject matter, students take notes and elaborate the topic addressed in the lecture through private study.

Often, group work (Übungen - UE) related to a lecture course is offered, which gives students an opportunity for in-depth study of the subject matter presented in the lectures. In many subjects, the content of lectures is discussed in tutorials (Tutorien - TU) which are held by senior students. The aim is to give students a chance to apply and deepen acquired knowledge in practical exercises and try out methodological features of academic work.
