The Research Class is a unique format developed by the Humboldt-Universität in 2013. In a Research Class, up to 15 students from different disciplines work together on an interdisciplinary topic. By being involved in current research projects, they learn about scientific working, exchange ideas with researchers, learn from them, and gain insights into the world of science at an early stage of their studies. Members of a Humboldt Research Class receive the Deutschlandstipendium and work on an interdisciplinary research project for two semesters.
