The Pro-Rector of Studying and Teaching coordinates the processes for establishing and changing study programmes. He is also responsible for quality assurance in the area of study and teaching and thus for surveys, evaluations and accreditations. Other areas of responsibility include teacher training, continuing academic education and university didactics. In dialogue with the other members of the Rectorate and the heads of the faculties and institutions, he develops quality goals for the area of study and teaching. The topics of internationalisation, the attractiveness of the Master's degree programmes and the promotion of student initiatives currently play a prominent role.
