Master's Degree Courses for International Tourism Students

International students in the field of tourism management can attend courses taught in English at Master's level and obtain ECTS within the framework of a recognised exchange semester.

All courses will be attended together with students from the respective degree programme. This multicultural mix of participants is a significant added value for both teachers and students.
The only exception to this is the "Research Project", which is offered especially for international tourism students. Here students are personally supervised by one of the lecturers from the "Institut für Tourismusforschung" - ITF (Institute for Tourism Research).
