Is there a preparatory maths course?

Yes, you will attend the preparatory course for Mathematics students. This takes place  from 18 September to 6 October 2023. Further information and the registration form can be obtained from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

Although the course is not mandatory, we strongly recommend that you attend it! Mathematics at the university is very different to mathematics at school and even good pupils can have trouble adjusting.

Is there an introductory week?

Yes. All the events taking place during the introductory week at the University of Konstanz can be found in the “Studienstarter” guide.

Which courses do I have to attend in my first semester?

In the 1st semester, you will attend the courses Linear algebra I, Analysis I, Statistics I and Corporate finance.

All modules and a plan of study can be found under programme content. Times and rooms for courses are listed in the online course catalogue.

At the moment it is necessary to register for all courses at the beginning of a semester via ZEuS. Later on in the semester you will register for the exams.
