On the MINTgruen pre-study orientation program, you’ll spend two semesters taking courses in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM; in German: MINT) and you can take exams to test your new knowledge.
You’ll attend special MINTgruen tutorials to deepen your knowledge, and practice applying it in the MINTgruen project labs, giving you an introduction to the issues, work techniques and methods in the STEM subjects.
The Wissenschaftsfenster module is an opportunity to explore current research issues in the STEM field and discuss sustainable development aspects. In the orientation module, you reflect on your experiences to achieve a solid basis on which to decide what you want to study.
If you go on to do a degree with us, you can get credit for any work and exams you did on the pre-study orientation program (if their content is appropriate).
The Academic Advising Service is the first point of contact for prospective MINTgruen students and supports the students before and during their studies - with individual advising and public events.
Students can arrange a one-on-one meeting with an academic advisor to discuss their personal interests, goals and possibilities, and any challenges they’re facing during their studies.
So if you are unsure which program to take or whether the orientation program is the right fit for you, please contact the Academic Advising Service to get their advice.

Mathematics is a vital part of STEM/MINT studies, but many students see it as an obstacle and have to put in a lot of hard work to overcome their difficulties.
Our aim on the mathematics mentoring team is to give students advice on how to cope with the challenges of the math modules.
More details can be found on the current ISIS MINTgruen mathematics mentoring page
