Service and Support

Your academic success is close to our heart. That is why we always have an open ear for you. Visit us personally during office hours, send an e-mail or give us a call. We will deal with your request as quickly as possible.

Open door policy

In addition, we have an “open door policy” at the department – so if you discover an open door at a professor or research assistant's office, just ask him or her. Especially if you have specific questions about a lecture, you should not hesitate to take advantage of this offer.

Student advice

Apart from the administrative and teaching staff, you can also get help from committed students. The student council, for example, is always happy to help you.

In addition, during the first semester of your stay, the Buddys will also help you. They take care of international students within the Buddy programme.

Specialisation options

In the Master of Science, Mathematics, you can choose two (if you do not take a minor subject, three) specialisations. For this you have a wide choice. Choose your specialisation from the seven available subjects:

You will attend seminars and lectures of at least 18 CP per specialisation. The specialisation module is concluded by an oral examination. You can find out how to register for the specialisation exams under Exam registration.

Tip: The seminars are very well suited to get into conversation with lecturers about master thesis topics. As the seminars are usually held in small groups, your lecturers will get to know you well and will be able to assess your abilities. This will help you find the right topic for your thesis.

Under certain conditions you can also take a minor subject instead of a third specialisation. It is best to contact the for this.

Recognition of passed courses

Under certain circumstances, mathematics courses that you have already taken in a previous study programme can be credited, thus reducing the duration of your studies. Please visit the pages of the examination board or contact the chairman directly.

Examination plans

If you completed your Bachelor's degree at another university, you must still have an examination plan completed and approved.
