International Course Catalogue


Multilingual workshops, seminars and lectures
Every semester, the International Office publishes the International Course Catalogue containing information on lectures and seminars in English (and other foreign languages) as well as international RUB master programmes. Although this catalogue is primarily designed for international students, you are welcome to join if you contact the lecturer prior to every course to confirm your participation.
The course participation can be acknowledged within the Research School programme, if it supports your research qualification and project. It is essential however, that these activities are NOT part of your own study courses. Please provide the respective documentation of your participation for the formal acknowledgement.

What is research-related training?

Courses and lectures, literature and methodology seminars, workshops and conferences offered by your own faculty fall under the category „research-related training“. Research-related are activities connected to your own individual project and your particular discipline – these are not activities offered by the Research School.
