Hello! You will be starting a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or a related field this fall? You can’t wait to get to know your university and your fellow students? You are looking for a gentle introduction to your program? Then you’ve come to the right place!


The Maths Prep Course will start September 13th, 2021, and end October 8th, 2021. Events will be Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. All events will be online and live, thus it’s not necessary to be present in Saarbrücken.

Depending on the current situation at the beginning of the preparatory course and the associated organizational effort for us, non-virtual events may also take place. We’ll keep you updated here.


Registration is necessary to attend this precourse. You can register here.

Do I have to be enrolled at the university to register?

No, if you are not yet enrolled at Saarland University at the time of registration, this is not a problem. However, you should plan to start your studies in the winter semester at Saarland University.
