Aim of the preliminary courses

Even students with good grades in advanced mathematics and science courses often find it difficult to meet the requirements of the lectures. The preparatory courses help you to get off to a successful start and 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 started with the study methodology at a university. Especially for those who have interrupted their education after leaving school, the preliminary courses offer a good re-entry into the subject areas.

The preliminary courses take place over the entire period 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.
