WADDEN SEA - DYNAMIC SYSTEM AND NATURAL HERITAGE
An international Programme for Erasmus+ exchange students
The new Erasmus+ exchange programme invites international students to come to The University of Oldenburg for a one-semester exchange and to learn about the functioning and the management of this complex socio-ecological system being a World Nature Heritage Site and a Biosphere Reserve.
In coastal areas marine and terrestrial ecosystems blur into one. Due to a large tidal range and the daily cycle of low and high tide, wadden sea ecosystems are extremely fascinating. We, at the Carl von Ossietzky University in Oldenburg, have such a wadden sea ecosystem, declared as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, right in front of our door step. We are looking very much
forward to welcome international students from all over Europe to learn about this ecosystem from different perspectives.
Our programme consist of lectures, seminars, and plenty of field work and experiments to get really good hands on experience on the ecosystem science and management. Oldenburg is a lovely, medium size city in the northwest of Germany with a good student life, offering plenty of
sportive and cultural leisure activities to ensure you will have a beneficial and pleasant Erasmus+ semester. With this brochure we want to provide you with all the necessary information for a stay with us.
