"It’s a pleasure to wake up every morning to go study in the university. The university provides us with problem-solving, friendly, patient, understanding and helpful professors who are always ready to attend to our needs when they arise.  Now I have amazing friends from different countries, speaking different languages and exchanging cultures. The location of the university is very attractive with lots of historical sites, squares and shops and also safe to move around anytime. I’m having an indelible moment studying here."

Pamela Owusu Nkwantabisah (Ghana, Geography BSc)

The study program offers complete education in geography, with special directions in Landscape and environmental studies, Regional and settlement development and also in Tourism. All three directions are supported by a strong GIS basis.

The program provides a general bachelor level education in geography. It includes introductory modules to Nature and social sciences, to Geology and to Geography. The core of the program is based on the fundamental issues of including topics in Physical, Human and Regional geography. Advanced courses can be chosen from the topics offered for the special directions. Beside the compulsory courses students have to choose optional courses to help them in their specialization. The courses usually consist of two parts: a lecture and a problem solving seminar, each worth 1 to 4 credits, depending on the nature of the topic.

The bachelor course in geography is the basis for the Master (MSc) line of applied geography with a special focus on the BSc specializations plus Geomorphology and GIS available at our university.
