Dear first-year students,
the preliminary courses will take place ONLINE for the 2020/21 winter semester. We have created a wide range of online materials for self-study and live phases with keynote lectures, inputs and tasks to discuss for you. Take advantage of the offer!

We also offer an online preliminary course between the winter and summer semesters in preparation for the lecture "Introduction to Organic Chemistry" at the Faculty of Chemistry. The preliminary course takes place in the week of March 8th. until March 12th, 2021. Registration is not required! All you need to do is register for course 631362 "Propaedeutic Organic Chemistry for Biologists". The event is open to all courses of study with the corresponding target event.

The "zeroth" semester is before the actual start of the course. This includes preliminary courses in mathematics, physics and chemistry as well as the orientation phase of the student council. Of course, you can also come to the university in Göttingen at the start of the lectures (usually mid / end of October), but we recommend that first-year students accept the offers, not only because it makes the transition from school to university easier, but also, because it is a good opportunity to get to know your fellow students.

The courses complement each other and are coordinated. If you did not take part in a preliminary course, you can still take part in other preliminary courses.

The courses are recommended for you to start your studies; Participation is particularly recommended if you voted out of chemistry, physics and / or mathematics at an early stage in school, want to refresh your knowledge or if you passed your high school diploma a long time ago.
