Attention! This page will be updated regularly and we ask you to call this page again shortly before the respective events, in case something changed in the meantime!

Hello freshman,

here you should find all the important information you need before you start your studies.

During the freshmen events we will give you all other important information. Of course you can always ask us your questions.

We would be happy if you would come to our Welcome Breakfast on the first day. And also if you would participate in our other events.

If you have any further questions beforehand, we will be happy to answer them. Simply write an e-mail using the contact form on this page.

See you then,

Note: We will also discuss the timetables in Weidenthal and until 22.10.18 you won't have to know exactly what your timetable looks like. All potential exercises are listed in the timetables with exercises. Of course you only have to visit one of the many exercises for each subject. Don't let the first impression frighten you.

For those interested there is also a lecture about the TUK committees:

First semester trip to Weidenthal

In the preliminary course we will tell you all this again, so that you still have some time until you have to make a final decision. Nevertheless here already in advance.

Between the compact mathematics course and the start of lectures, the physics student council offers a three-day trip to the youth hostel in Weidenthal (Am Weiher 47, 67475 Weidenthal) in the winter semester. There you have the opportunity to get to know your fellow students and the student representatives. You will also get all the important information about the start of your studies.


For the 2 overnight stays and full board we ask for a contribution towards expenses of 25€.

To participate, we need a registration (by e-mail, fax, post or personally) and transfer the fee to our account.

Online Math Bridge Course

The Department of Mathematics offers an online math bridge course to prepare students for their studies. There you can check your level of knowledge of school mathematics and close existing gaps individually. In addition to the learning units and tests with solutions, there is also the possibility to ask questions directly to the OMB-tutors.
