Teaching staff

International Studies isn't an institute, like for example History is. Therefore, the lecturers that teach in the programme are mostly employed by ATCLUCLLUCASLIAS and the Institute for History. For an overview of the courses and names of the teachers please check the Prospectus. For more information on the majority of the tasks of a tutor and procedures, have a look at the Tutor Manual. Aside from rules and procedures, the manual also reflects what we see as two of the core characteristics of the tutor team: professionalism and team spirit.
