General Studies at SRH University Heidelberg
In accordance with our didactic model CORE (Competence Oriented Research & Education), our General Studies aim to develop competencies, which will be directly useful for both your studies and later in your professional life.
In Presence through Authenticity, for example, you will learn how to become more quick-witted, credible, spontaneous and convincing. You will learn how to reach people with passion and charisma through a good appearance! This is what you will need for your job interview and when the HR Manager asks you about your own career goals. In fact, you will already need this authenticity in your next lecture when you have to present the results of a group work.
In Effective Learning you will deal with memory and learning techniques, speed reading and efficient time & priority management. These are essential skills to be continuously successful in your studies and career.
Or let's take a look at the Basic Digital Skills course: Here you will learn how to use the basic tools required for your studies and career, such as MS Word or MS Excel.
Use our General Studies offer as an opportunity to explore a wide range of topics, broaden your horizons, experience something new and stimulating and develop and mature your personality.

At the Faculty of Economics, courses such as Entrepreneurship, Scientific Work, Keynote, Intercultural Communication, etc. can be recognized within the module "Applied Scientific Work" (Bachelor curriculum), at the Faculty of Therapeutic Sciences within the electives. If you are a student of another faculty, please contact your examination office for recognition.
If you are skipping a course without having officially cancelled your registration, you will unfortunately be banned from the General Studies courses for the upcoming semester.
