Questions about the study

What is the difference between the Bachelor's programs Georesources Management and Applied Geosciences?

The Georesources Management program is an interdisciplinary course of study. It consists of geoscientific, business administration and law modules. 

The Applied Geosciences program is a purely geoscientific program. It teaches in-depth knowledge of the structure, dynamics and chemistry of the earth as well as chemical, physical and mathematical methods for solving complex, geoscientific problems.

For more information on the courses, please refer to the module handbooks.

Do I have to do an internship before or during my studies?

A four-week internship is mandatory in the Bachelor's degree programs. This is scheduled for the fourth semester. The internship must be meaningfully related to the bachelor's degree program. It can be completed at home or abroad.

More information can be found in the student section of the Division website.

Is there an NC for geoscientific courses of study?

No, there is no numerus clausus. All Bachelor's degree programs in the Division are open-admission programs.

Who do I contact with questions?
