Organizing your Studies

At the beginning of the semester you need to schedule your studies. In the subjects of engineering, natural sciences and medicine usually a given time table is available. For most subjects in the faculties of arts and social sciences you will have to create your own timetable. The best way to do this is to find a plan of how your programme should be structured, where you can see what compulsory courses you must take in the first few semesters. Then choose the relevant courses from those on offer and create your individual timetable.

You will find a study plan or the given time table on your subject area‘s website or a subject advisor can provide you with one. Departmental student organizations are also there to help you during the first weeks of the semester and can also help you to create your timetable. The introductory session held for your subject at the beginning of your studies will provide you with further information.

Introductory Events

In the first week of the new semester, introductory events are held in all faculties for each subject. There, students will be welcomed by the heads of the various institutes or subject areas and will receive a basic introduction.

Course catalogues

The course catalogue provides information about all courses on offer at the RUB and is organized according to faculties and degree programmes. In the course catalogue you will find information about the type and content of the relevant course, as well as requirements for the course and information about exams, reading lists, the lecturer, time and place etc. of each course.

The International Course Catalogue contains information about lectures and seminars taught in English and other foreign languages at RUB
