Preparatory Courses

Preparatory courses, often referred to as bridging courses, are aimed at first-year students. Before the beginning of a course, the freshly registered students can brush up on their school knowledge in a specialised manner. The objective is making it easier to catch up on the regular university lectures. Students define their own deficits and choose the appropriate, relevant bridging/preparatory courses. Participation in these courses, which take place before the official start of the course of study, is voluntary. The preparatory courses usually require two to three weeks' time, with daily phases of work, i.e. seminars.
