About me

Hello! My name is Richard and I am studying biology and chemistry to become a teacher at secondary schools. Becoming a teacher is my dream job. By combining my science subjects with sociology, education and psychology, I look at many exciting questions from different perspectives during my studies. I love to support other people in their endeavours.

Richard,
Biology and Chemistry Teaching at Secondary Schools

In the beginning, studying often feels like everything is crushing down on someone. However don’t panic! You will learn quick how to organize yourself. Take part in the OWO-weeks. They are a big help for solving the problem “How do I live while studying?”

Benefits of studying:

Studying teaching facilitates a multitude of possibilities to examine the teacher’s perspective – at school and in the university. We also have a module which consists of us criticizing our own programme and how we would improve it.

My tip for the students:

In the beginning, studying often feels like everything is crushing down on someone. However don’t panic! You will learn quick how to organize yourself. Take part in the OWO-weeks. They are a big help for solving the problem “How do I live while studying?”

Never forget: Take time to take a deep breath. Don’t stress yourself to hard. You are allowed to have a life besides the university.
