Kiel University is keen to transfer knowledge to society. This is achieved by exhibitions at the CAU's museums, collections and gardens and by lecture series. Public events such as the "Night of the Profs", exciting experiments at Kieler Woche or workshops at the Kieler Forschungswerkstatt attract guests of all ages. Music and choral ensembles offer a variety of cultural experiences, from the weekly lunchtime matinee to semester concerts.

Lecture series

What are lecture series?

A lecture series is a series of events with a lecture character that usually takes place weekly. Various professors from the university or guest speakers give lectures with a thematic focus. These include, for example, medical, socio-political, sports or the humanities. Attendance at the lecture series (or individual dates) is free of charge. Lecture series are open to the general public. They are presented in an understandable way and prepared for non-specialists.


The University Sports Centre offers a wide range of courses, free sports and games at the CAU's sports facilities.
