Shaping paths

During your studies

Modular structures, examination regulations and model course schedules are all valuable tools to help you plan and structure your studies. Yet we also know that each student invariably follows their own unique path to their degree, and that personal conditions, goals and challenges can play a major role in a student’s time at university.

We at the University of Bonn are dedicated to helping you, offering active support in formulating and executing your study schedule.

Planning your Studies

Successfully planning your studies goes beyond looking into administrative questions. Although the compulsory courses are relatively broad in scope, particularly in the first few semesters, many academic disciplines allow students to create a profile or set of priorities for themselves early on that will have a major influence on the next stages of their studies. For this reason, identifying the requirements of your degree program early on and planning ahead can positively impact your studies in the long run.
