Preliminary Year & BSc Course

Our BSc course in Computer Science consists of 6 semesters, and provides a general overview of the world of Informatics: the practise of programming, software engineering and the appropriate mathematical and theoretical background. Please find the detailed Curriculum and the List of Topics for each course on this page.

The Preliminary Year is for those who want to (or have to) prepare themselves better before starting a BSc course in Computer Science in English. The Preliminary Year includes lessons in Mathematics, Informatics and English language.

So you can start your studies as a student of the BSc course if

  • after examining your Application, our Admission Board has decided that you can start the BSc, and
  • you have successfully passed the Entry Test in early September, and
  • you have paid the full Tuition Fee for the BSc.

You can start your studies as a student of our Preliminary Year if

  • you did not successfully pass the Entry Test, or
  • you were admitted to the BSc, but you decide rather to go to the Preliminary Year.

If you are going to start the Preliminary Year, you don't have to pass the Entry Test, but of course you also have to pay the full Tuition Fee for the Preliminary, before becoming a student.
