Winter semester 2022/23

Dear students, Dear students from other universities, Dear participants of the FWJ at RUB,
we are already looking ahead to the winter semester 2022/23.

The placement tests will probably 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!

As of today, we are planning the WiSe 22/23 in the same way as the SoSe 22: predominantly in presence with isolated 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 details for WiSe 22/23 are expected to be available there from mid-June).
The attendance requirement is again 75%. You can read more about it on the page Course Participation.

The registration period for the courses begins on 12/09/2022 and ends for you on 11/10/2022(!), 12 noon. Later registrations will not be accepted. The course starts in the week from 17/10/2022.

If you have any questions or are unsure, please contact

We look forward to your participation!
