There is a lot to organise before the degree programmes get underway. The Orientation Week and preliminary courses for some degree programmes begin before the official start of lectures.
For first-year students, the first semester kicks off with an Orientation Week. Take a peak at the current programme.
The International Orientation Week offers new international students the opportunity to take care of important paperwork and formalities and to get to know the University and the city of Oldenburg.
It is recommended that first-year students attend preliminary courses, also called the propaedeutic phase, of the corresponding degree programmes. The following preliminary courses are offered:
- Propaedeutic Mathematics for Computing Science Students (Business Informatics, Computing Sciences)
- Propaedeutic Unix operating system
Mathematics sorted by subject:
- Bachelor's of Mathematics (Bachelor's Programme and Dual-Subject Bachelor's Programme)
- Online Preparatory Course in Mathematics (OMB+): Preliminary course recommended for Elementary Mathematics and other Bachelor's Programmes with mathematics content
Please note that for the preliminary courses a registration is usually necessary !
Registration for most courses takes place during Orientation Week. The exact dates will be announced during the various departmental welcome and introduction sessions. Generally speaking, you should register for modules via Stud.IP.
If you are studying a dual-subject Bachelor's degree with the intention of becoming a teacher, for some subjects your language skills will need to be at a sufficient level:
