Courses for First Semester Students in Wintersemester 2020/21

The Courses should be offered online due to their size. In order to get started in the studies as good as possible despite Corona, we offer exercises in small groups and in presence. This gives the students ideal conditions to get started and to network with one another.  

Orientation Week to the Semester Start

Faculty and student council offer this introductory week directly before the beginning of the lecture period. The student council introduce the institutions of the Leibniz University and university life, while lecturers of the Faculty carry out a brief refresher of the mathematics proficiency. Registration is not required.

Mathematical/Physical Preparatory Courses

uni:fit - fördern, informieren, trainieren

A three-week math intensive course, which facilitates the professional entry into the study. The concept of uni: fit is as simple as logical: to collect the beginners of the studies "where they stand".

Attention: This course charges a participant fee.

Bridging Course Mathematics OMB+ for Students of Physics

The Mathematics Bridging Course (OMB+) prepares students to study mathematics, meteorology and physics. The OMB+ can be used to refresh the knowledge of mathematics from the school and to teach basic procedures for the application. In particular, there is also a call center, which is staffed with competent tutors and is available every day.

For physics students, the course is available free of charge via a special page of the German Physical Society.
