Preparatory Courses

Preparatory Courses

Preparatory courses, often referred to as bridging courses, are aimed at first-year students. Even before the start of their studies, newly registered students can brush up on their school knowledge in a subject-specific manner. The objective is to facilitate the transition to the regular lectures of the degree programme. Students define their deficits themselves and choose the appropriate bridging/preparatory courses relevant to their studies. Participation in the courses, which are held before the official start of studies, is voluntary.

The time frame for bridging courses is usually two to three weeks, during which daily work phases or exercises take place.
