What awaits you in this course?

In this module, you will learn the principles of scientific work in the German Education System, which you can then independently apply to your studies in Germany (for example in Kiron). The module is for people who often have no or little experience in practical project work in the German Education System due to a different education system in other countries. The module is written from a German perspective. We are aware that you might not know "Scientific Project Work" as it is explained here. Therefore we will look into the concept and the associated content. Be curious of what to come! Curiosity is the basis of all science in order to discover new things.
