Discover the world in our lecture halls

Academia is exciting and is a lot of fun. It is not only our “big” students who know this, but more and more children going to primary school want to get involved. That is why we have also been offering courses for our youngest students for years. We organize lectures on various core research topics in the summer semester and winter semester. Children from six to twelve years can participate free of charge and even receive a special diploma certificate.

Do you want to register your child? For current programme, the registration details, photos, and other questions you might have as a parent, please refer to the official website de (in German). For information in English, please contact University for Children team (see below).

We look forward to meeting all our little and bigger researchers.
