EPICUR is developing a wide variety of state-of-the-art teaching and learning formats with an emphasis on collaborative teaching and learning.  These courses deal with real-world problems, include interdisciplinary and intercultural perspectives, and aim to inspire critical thinking and autonomous and transformative learning.  The first EPICUR courses (in English) will be offered to students from across the alliance starting November 2020.  Seats are limited. 

  • For courses offered by University of Freiburg: apply to enrol by 6-October.

! Due to the great success of Epicur’s winter semester courses, registrations for the courses offered by the University of Freiburg are closed.

Discover and sign up for the first EPICUR Alliance courses on European identities, Natural & Societal Sustainability and other topics during this winter semester. A new teaching and learning experience, open to all students of the 8 EPICUR universities.

Please check with an adviser at your home institution whether EPICUR courses will be recognised in your programme for the ECTS specified (e.g., as an elective).  If this isn’t possible, the course can still be taken as an extracurricular activity
