Winter semester 2021/22

Dear students,
The winter semester 2021/22 continues to present us with challenges.

As in the past two semesters, the placement tests will be conducted online. There are several dates on which you can be assessed. You can find the dates, the technical requirements and the procedure on the ZFA homepage in the Placements section.

Most courses will continue to take place online (via Moodle and Zoom). However, we will also start with some face-to-face courses in the winter semester 2021/22. The courses are marked accordingly in the course title. Due to the many different forms of the courses, it is not possible to make a general statement about the procedure. You will receive further information from the lecturers during the first course lesson.

Please read on before you click!

The registration period for the courses begins on 21.09.2021 and ends on 20.10.2021(!), 12:00 noon. Later registrations cannot be considered. Courses start in the week beginning on 25.10.2021.

Our offered courses can already be viewed in the RUB Online VVZ.
