Before Start


Before starting your studies, a preliminary course of mathematics is helpful in repeating the subject and getting to know the processes at university. At the Technical University of Dortmund, such a three-week preliminary course is offered annually in September. For students of the Bachelor's Degree in Data Analysis and Data Management, the pre-course Computer Science is also suitable, which also takes place in September.

Participation in the preliminary courses is voluntary and not compulsory.

During the preliminary courses, there is usually a game café for all first-semester students of the study programs Statistics, Data Analysis and Data Management or Data Science.

Since 2015 there is a pre-course ticket from the VRR.

A preliminary course for Master students is offered annually in September. The course repeats the most important content of the statistics bachelor of TU Dortmund. More information can be found here.


Orientation Week

A good opportunity to meet the fellow students, to get to know the university and the city, to get detailed information about the minor subjects when studying Statistics, to compile the timetable etc. is the orientation week (O-Phase), where new students are welcomed every winter semester. As a rule, the orientation week takes place the week before the lectures start. Further information can be found on the pages of the FSR.
