11.08.2016 | What professors expect from first-year students: logical reasoning, independent learning and personal commitment
What skills should a student possess to study law, medicine or electrical engineering? This was the question the CHE Centre for Higher Education asked professors in Germany.

However, an analysis conducted by the CHE Centre for Higher Education has come to a different result. There has only been a slight increase in undergraduate degree programmes that first-year students can choose from, and there are good reasons for the increasing diversity of these majors.
