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 Science, 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 and Data Science.

Preliminary courses for Master students are also offered. The courses repeat the most important content of the statistics and Data Science 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. Usually the orientation week takes place the week before the lectures start.
