Abstract

This paper presents reflections on the arrangement, experiences und consequences from two university courses concerning education in Africa. One of the courses is part of the Bachelor, one of the Master periods in Educational Sciences at Helmut-Schmidt-University, University of the Federal Armed Forces Hamburg. The conclusion shows, that Bachelorstudents compensate the lack of elementary knowledge by intensifying their preceding concepts while Masterstudents are able to develop sustainable work results.
