Study trial - get a taster!
The University of Paderborn provides regular information about the entire range of courses. With the help of the taster course you can get to know the study program up close and experience the everyday life of the university. The opportunity to get into conversation with students, lecturers and staff is particularly appealing. The university's central student advisory service will also be happy to give you tips and advice on your choice of study and career: You can find more information about the taster course here.
