We have exciting news to share: In cooperation with the Leibniz-ScienceCampus Europe and America we are launching a new prize for the best master's thesis in Area Studies.
On top of prize money, the winners will also have the chance to publish their work with the ScienceCampus. And there will be a nice certificate to go on your wall, too!

The prize is open for all students who completed their law, teaching, or master's degree at the University of Regensburg between summer semester 2019 and summer semester 2020.

The call for applications is available here (in German).

We have a SHK/WHK (student assistant) post at CITAS, available from 1 Oct 2020. Applications welcome until 2 August 2020. The post is part-time for 30 hours a month. It is open to UR students.
