Preparation courses (Vorkurse), introductory sessions, Orientation Week, Orientation Days... Find out what happens when and where, and what offers you should accept to have an optimal start of your studies!

THE OPTIMAL START OF YOUR STUDIES

Preparation courses are offered for many degree programmes. Although participation is optional, it is strongly recommended. You will recieve basic knowledge of the programme, you will meet your fellow students and lecturers, and much more. There are preparation courses in mathematics open to all disciplines and preparation courses restricted to specific degree programmes. Find out in good time when and where these are held. If you are going to study more than one subject, go to the introductory sessions of your main subject. They often take place shortly before the semester begins.

Introductory sessions are held by lecturers and students of the faculties. They provide an overview of the organisation of the degree programme (including timetable/lecture plan), exam requirements, and much more. 

This orientation and guidance is a big help to new students. You should take advantage of it! Many events will probably take place online in the 2020/21 winter semester.
