A course based on the bachelor analytical cycle. It will be more interactive than the bachelor lecture. The second hour of the lessons will be used for exercises whose results will serve as basis for the pass/fail decision.

Book the course if you can imagine to – or already do – work in analytical labs or on a PhD thesis with practical analytical aspects – and if you liked the style of Analytik VI. 

Do not book the course if you are looking for a cheap credit point or plan to work solely with the provided materials without attending..
