CNMS regularly arranges trips throughout Germany and the Middle East. These trips are related to courses which prepare participants for the relevant topics. They may be one-day events or spread over several days. Observations made during the trips, alongside theoretical knowledge, can be applied to the research students engage in. Multi-day excursions are sometimes also carried out as part of research projects.
To date, students have visited Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Iraqi Kurdistan, Syria (when it was still possible), Lebanon, Turkey and Iran. Planned trips will be shown in the lecture timetable. For CNMS students, grants are available.
