The Faculty of Spatial Sciences is an internationally-oriented community of academics, students and support staff. The staff members operate within extensive international research and educational networks. The Human Geography & Urban and Regional Planning BSc programme and the Cultural Geography MSc programme include a compulsory excursion abroad. The Faculty’s student organization Ibn Battuta offers a range of foreign study trips for the entire student population. Over 50% of the students of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences complete their degree programmes with at least 3 months spent studying abroad.
