Preparation is everything!

Did you graduate from high school a while ago? Do you want to get off to the smoothest possible start? Then we strongly recommend that you attend the preliminary course offered by the faculty of mathematics.

The preliminary course will refresh your knowledge and fill in gaps that you (perhaps unconsciously!) bring with you. Last but not least, you will already get a little campus air around your nose and get used to the local learning pace.

Preliminary course


The preliminary course is aimed at first-year students of all mathematics-related disciplines, especially engineering and mathematics and natural sciences. Accordingly, in the preliminary course, mathematical school material is repeated and not, for example, the mathematical training intended for the basic studies is anticipated. The preliminary math course is subject to registration.

It is possible and useful to join the preliminary course even after it has started.
