Winter semester 2023

Dear students, Dear students from other universities, Dear participants of the FWJ at RUB,
the placement tests for the winter semester 2023 will continue to be done online. There are several dates on which you can do a placement test. You can find the dates, the subject requirements and the procedure on the homepage of the ZFA under the section Placements. Please read the information on the previously mentioned page carefully!

Our courses will mainly take place in presence. As in the last semester we will have a few courses in blended learning format. This means that the courses will take place either once a week for 180 min. or twice a week for 90 min. Course days/times can be found in the Online Vorlesungsverzeichnis der RUB.

The attendance requirement is 75% over all lessons. You can read more about it on the page Course Participation.

The registration period for the courses begins on 18/09/2023 and ends for you on 16/10/2023(!), 5am. Later registrations will not be accepted. The courses starts from the 19/10.2023 on.

If you have any questions or are unsure, please contact

We look forward to your participation!
