Preliminary Courses for the Master's Programmes Statistics, Data Science and Econometrics

The Faculty of Statistics offers new Master students a total of 3 pre-courses to refresh Bachelor contents in Statistics and Data Science. Students are free to choose the courses they need for a successful start of their studies.

Attention: To participate in the courses you need your UniAccount to get access to the learning platform Moodle. You will receive your UniAccount after your enrolment. If you do not yet have a UniAccount, we can set up a temporary guest account for you. Please send us a short e-mail to precourse@statistik.tu-dortmund.de with details of your course of study.


In the following the 3 preliminary courses are briefly introduced:

Vorkurs Statistik (course language German)

The Vorkurs Statistik is a German-speaking 3-week classroom course with a 3-day introduction into the statistical software R. This year it will take place from 5th October to 23th October 2020 as an online live course via zoom (due to the corona virus).

The course is particularly aimed at Master students of the Statistics Master's programme who have not acquired a Bachelor's degree at our faculty or who would like to refresh their knowledge before starting their Master's. However, it can also be attended by Data Science and Econometrics students who prefer a German-language classroom course.

This course has the great advantage that an expert lecturer will be in charge of the course during the whole time and can individually respond to the questions and knowledge of the students.

All course materials and further information can be found on the TU Dortmund University internal learning platform Moodle.

Pre-Course Statistics (course language English)

The pre-course statistics is the English language equivalent of the Vorkurs Statistik. It is aimed at students of the English language courses Data Science and Econometrics, but can of course also be attended by students of the Master of Statistics.

This course is an e-learning course. All materials (lecture videos, scripts, exercises and solutions) are available on the TU Dortmund University internal learning platform Moodle at any time. This means that you can freely plan your time and do not have to be in Dortmund to participate.

In addition to the time flexibility, this preliminary course offers the opportunity to get used to the English language and English technical terms.
