for Research Master students, PhD students and external participants
All regular courses are taught in blocks of eight weeks, with lectures during the first six (core courses) or seven weeks; the eighth week of each block typically serves as an exam week. In addition, first-year (core) courses have weekly one-hour classes, taught by a teaching assistant, in which students work on and discuss homework assignments.
