Offers for study beginners

Welcome and information talk

At the beginning of a lecture period, we welcome our new master students into the program:

  • Every winter semester there is an informal get-together where you can get to know each other as well as the staff of the Bachelor-Master office. This event is scheduled shortly before the lecture period of the winter semester begins.

  • Every semester we offer an information talk where the study program, the range of modules, the examination regulations, the mentoring program, etc., are explained in detail. This event usually takes place on the first day of the lecture period.

Student mentoring

Students in the 2nd or higher semester offer student mentoring to all beginners. This student mentoring program is an additional offer which is strictly voluntary and does not relate to academic issues.

Mentor and mentee meet once or twice at the beginning of the program in a relaxed atmosphere (in person or online) and talk about starting their studies. The mentors are personal contacts for questions about studying Mathematics. This does not involve technical questions or tasks from the exercises. Rather, the following topics can be addressed, for example:

  • How do I get started in the program? Studierende Wiese
  • Are there any particularities about the Master's program in Bonn I should be aware of?
  • Where can I find suitable literature?
  • Where can I find help if I have subject-related problems?
  • What can I do if I feel overwhelmed, when there is hardly any free time left?
  • What places should I know in Bonn for leisure time outside of Mathematics?

You are certainly not alone with many questions and problems at the start of your studies, many other students have these just like you. The mentoring meetings can make your start easier and help you to orientate yourself in Bonn Mathematics. 

If you would like a mentor, please register by sending an email including your name and email address to [Email protection active, please enable JavaScript.].

Academic mentoring program

Upon admission to the Master's program you are assigned to a professor of your indicated major area as your academic mentor. Your mentor will help you to design your optimal study plan.

  • In the first days of the lecture period the mentors will organize a joint meeting with all their mentees in order to introduce the lectures and seminars of the upcoming term. You can ask questions concerning your academic planning of the semester.

  • At the end of the first semester, you will have an obligatory individual counselling with your mentor. You will talk about if your study start went well, if you encountered any difficulties, and how you plan to continue your studies.

  • Normally this is the end of the mentoring, unless you and your mentor agree that the mentoring should be continued for another semester.

You can see in BASIS who your academic mentor is by logging in and clicking "Information on registered examinations". If you have any questions concerning the organization of the mentoring program please address them to the Bachelor-Master Office.
