Evaluation of the quality of
the master's programs
Is study abroad included within the context of a Master’s degree?
Leuphana University of Lüneburg maintains partnership relations with many foreign universities. On the International Office homepage you will find detailed information on different ways of studying abroad and the respective funding opportunities. It is generally possible and requested to have any academic performance achieved abroad recognized. Since study periods abroad are not compulsory in the Leuphana master’s programs, such periods must be organized by the students themselves. Further details should be discussed with the advisor of the student’s major discipline.
Additional information is provided in the handbook Leitfaden Auslandssemester [in PDF format, german].
size of groups
Leuphana Graduate School attaches great value to a good student-lecturer relationship. Since you will join different master’s groups as part of an interdisciplinary program, it is not possible to specify the general size of groups. On average large courses have no more than 50-60 participants, whereas in many courses the number of participants is much smaller smaller.
The Complementary Studies program, in which all master’s students of the same year level (except for students enrolled in the Teacher Training program) come together for joint studies, represents an exception. However, large lectures within this program are supplemented by small group tutorials. The same applies to the Management Studies program, in which students from all majors within the Management & Entrepreneurship master’s program come together.
How do I get an overview of the course offerings?
In the bottom section of the webpage of each program of study, you will find a link to an overview of all modules.
If you want to get an idea of what an ordinary day as a student is like, you can participate in an individual sampler program called "Stippvisite". You will find more information and an overview of all offerings on the Stippvisite pages.
Are there special arrangements for students with children or for working students?
The master’s programs offered at Leuphana Graduate School are designed as four semester full-time programs. Part-time study is principally possible and can be arranged in consultation with the student’s advisor. For more information, please visit the part-time studies pages.
Combining family, work and study poses a central issue for both students and employees at Leuphana. To succeed in accomplishing this task, the University provides various facilities, for example a number of child-care centers.
