Module enrol­ment for the winter semester 2020/21 begins on 07 October 2020 at noon and ends on 14 October 2020 at 5 pm.

On 07 October we will be avail­able from from noon to 5 pm to answer your questions about module enrol­ment. Visit us in room 219 or check out our Discord Server.

12.10. - 16.10.

Bridge courses physics, meteor­o­logy, IPSP

In the maths bridging course you refresh your school knowledge.

In the morning, the contents are taught in a lecture, followed by exercises in smaller groups in the after­noon.

Parti­cip­a­tion is volun­tary.
However, regis­tra­tion is required.

13.10.

City trip + bridge course meeting point meteor­o­logy

Follow­ing the bridge course, the ‘Elfer­rat’ will show you the most import­ant locations for lab courses and lectures outside the faculty on the tradi­tion­al handcart tour. Meeting point is the main entrance of the faculty. 
After­wards you will meet your future lectur­ers at the bridge course meeting. Network with music and drinks!

This event is aimed at students of the B.Sc. Meteor­o­logy.

Masks are compuls­ory for both events!

Start of lectures

The first lectures, seminars and exercises are waiting for you.

We will gladly contin­ue to answer all your questions.

If you would like to learn more about us and our work, please come to our meeting.

We wish you much success in your studies.

In addition, we organ­ise a variety of fresh­ers events where you can get to know the city, the people and the highlights of the region. You can find more inform­a­tion under the heading ‘Local Guides’.

First Semester

Nothing is better than finding out what holds the world togeth­er at its core. No matter for what reason you decided to study physics – you have certainly chosen an infin­itely excit­ing study.

But of course you start with the basics in the first semesters, and patience is required. In the first 3 semesters you will build up your maths basics. In exper­i­ment­al physics you will start with classic­al mechan­ics and thermo­dy­nam­ics and in the lab course you will do your first exper­i­ments yourself.

Especially at the begin­ning of your studies you will be challenged by the amount of work. But exactly then it means not to lose courage. For each module you will have to perform so-called required pre-exam achieve­ments, which are presen­ted in the form of exercises. By the end of the semester, you must have success­fully completed 50% of the tasks in order to be admit­ted to the examin­a­tion. This often requires a period of getting used to. So it is helpful to prepare and follow up lectures. Especially if you get togeth­er in small groups and have the right liter­at­ure at hand (it is worth­while to borrow the special­ist liter­at­ure that the profess­or recom­mends from our library!), the whole thing is defin­itely feasible.

You should also be encour­aged to contact your profess­ors or tutors in case of problems, by e-mail or especially during office hours, because these are exactly there for you! Not least, older students who have struggled with the same problems at the begin­ning will help you as much as possible. The Aula is a popular place to work on exercises. So have a look!
