Courses and seminars on subjects relating to sustainability, the climate and the environment are offered every semester for all study phases. Most of these events are interdisciplinary. In the winter term, the university offers an annual tutorial that includes an excursion to the United Nations Climate Change Conference and is intended for advanced Bachelor students and for Master students of all disciplines and faculties. A number of degree programmes award additional credit for this tutorial if it is listed in the ‘General skills’ (ÜK) section.
