Studium Generale

Studium Generale is a series of lectures, scientific talks, discussions and exhibitions over the course of a semester, which explore areas of interest about and beyond the courses of study offered by Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences.

The lectures of Studium Generale offer scientific talks that are intelligible for everyone and help to build a general universal education. All events are free to attend for everyone and target both students and the public, citizens and pupils as well as all members of the university and people interested in science.

The evening events at Kleve Campus not only aim to provide further education, but also provide a platform for lively exchange and discussions on current issues.

The next lectures of Studium Generale will take place in the winter semester 2021/22.

The winter semester 2020/21 offered digital lectures via Webex dealing different topics, for example soil and climate change, communication and mindfulness or healthy working.

In the winter semester 2019/20 Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences offered a lecture programme, which  evolved around the topic "growth". The programme and dates can be found in the flyer. In the winter semester 2018/19 the main topic of the lectures was "water". Lecturers belonging to the university explored the different perspectives of water together with external speakers.

The lectures are free of charge and registration in advance is not required. Please note: the lectures and discussions will be in German.

Results of the survey

In order to further develop and improve the Studium Generale, we have started to conduct a survey among the visitors after each period of lectures.

Among other things, we wanted to know how the visitors liked the format and the topics, which suggestions there are for improvement and what topics the visitors wished for the next period of lectures.

The answers of the surveys are shown graphically below:

  • Water in the winter semester 2018/19 (90 participants)
  • Growth in the winter semester 2019/20 (68 participants)
