Several students already have experience in a language, mathematics or accounting. If you want to brush up these skills before the placement test, you can participate in a compact course.
The compact courses take place before the semester begins. During this period, the following compact courses are offered:
- English compact course (Level 2) - only with corresponding number of registrations
- Mathematics compact course (german language only)
- Accounting compact course (german language only)
Registration for placement tests and compact courses has finished
The English compact course includes about 60 hours. During this time, students work intensively to improve their English language skills. The course is primarily reserved for freshmen whose experience with the English language is not recent or who did not have an English grade better than satisfactory in school. The contents of the English compact course are chosen so that the students can increase their performance level to the next level.
At the beginning of the compact course, the placement test is performed for the first time to assess the language level of the students. Uniform groups are formed on the basis of the results. At the end of the compact course, their improved performance level is identified with a test and an interview.
In the Mathematics compact course, students can brush up on the skills from their Abitur [university qualification] and specifically prepare for the placement test. The content of the mathematics placement test such as the basics of algebra, arithmetic, function theory and differential calculus including curve sketching are covered intensively.
To prepare, sample tests with the solutions are available to participants.
