Preparation for Your Successful Study
Some of our Master's programs require specific knowledge, so we have established preparatory courses to fill possible knowledge gaps in specific areas. This approach allows for the HECTOR School to fulfill the individual needs of our course participants based on their levels of knowledge. Flexibility is key, and participants from different academic backgrounds and diverse professional experience levels all come together to enrich the student experience.

All Services Directly on Campus
Live directly on campus - you can't be closer to the city center, directly adjacent to the Schlosspark and above all closeby to your lectures. As a KIT student, you can take advantage of the many services offered by KIT, from sports activities, libraries, canteen, various student groups and many more.
Sometimes it is easier to talk among yourselves. That is why there are mentors from higher intakes that you can approach with questions and request advice.
Furthermore the House of Competence (HoC) of the KIT offers a study café for international students every first Wednesday of the month. Here you can meet other students from all over the world and also talk about study related topics such as study methods or scientific writing. This is a place for intercultural exchange.

The Best Way to Your Master Thesis
You should start thinking about your Master thesis during your studies. The Master thesis is the ideal opportunity to position yourself as an expert in your field, to find out more about your favorite topic or to initiate an innovation project in your company. We support you in finding the right topic and the right supervisor - and of course in scheduling, so that you will successfully complete your studies. Do not hesitate to contact Ms Sabrina Wunderlich at sabrina.wunderlich∂kit.edu if you have any questions regarding your thesis.
