Aim of the preliminary courses

Even students with good grades in advanced mathematics and science courses often have difficulty meeting the requirements of the lectures. The pre-study courses help to give you a successful start as well as to compensate for the different levels of prior knowledge.

Our extensive range of short courses gives you the opportunity to refresh your knowledge and get a head start on university study methodology. Especially for those who have interrupted their education after graduating from high school, the preliminary courses offer a good re-entry into the subject areas.

The preliminary courses take place over the entire period in a range of 12-36 teaching units per subject. The courses can be booked individually and take place Monday to Friday mornings and afternoons in blocks of 4 teaching units. The teaching times are planned in such a way that three preliminary courses of 36 hours each (or several shorter ones) can be attended and there is an opportunity for self-study.
