The seminar is structured as follows: On April 1th, the seminar will start with a kick off meeting, where students will be briefed on the overall subject of the seminar. Upon this occasion, students will also be introduced to the different topics of the seminar which will be allocated to students according to their preferences. After the kick-off meeting, students enter the writing phase where they work individually on their topics and write their term papers. Within four weeks after the topic allocation the seminar reconvenes for a research Q&A session where students can discuss their outline draft with their tutor. After the submission of term papers students receive a short feedback in order to facilitate and guide the preparation of the group presentations. Then, students work together to prepare a group presentation of their topic.
