For some study programmes we offer preliminary courses in mathematics and chemistry. Here you can refresh your school knowledge, prepare yourself for your studies - and, of course, make initial contacts. As a rule, the preliminary courses are optional, but are recommended.
We offer courses for the following study programmes: Chemistry BSc, Chemistry teacher training, Biogeoscience BSc and Earth Sciences BSc.
More details for the courses in winter semester 2020/21 will be published soon.
