Start of the programme

After many months of planning and preparing we are welcoming our first students in the international M. Sc. programme High-Performance Sport. Thirteen Students from seven different countries started the degree in this winter term. Before the start of the lectures we organised a "Welcome Week", including many different cultural and scientific activities. For example, students were invited to a city rally, participated in a "Science meets practice" Symposium, including speakers from research and the applied field, and travelled to Strasbourg to visit the European parliament. Of course, we also provided a lot of useful information on the degree organisation as well as our international partners, who travelled to Saarbrücken from Australia, England and the Netherlands.
