Start of Studies (Master)

On this page you will find an overview of the digital offers of the student council and some useful tips for Master freshman. (For the Bachelor programmes we refer to the German version)

Besides these offers, you should definitely log in at Moodle. (Please notice: You will receive your official RUB-Moodle-account with your enrollment, which should be used consistently from then on.)

In case you have questions

  • concerning the studies in general or offers of the student council, you may contact us via one of the numerous contact options,

The Discord Server of the student council offers you the possibility to get in contact with your fellow students, to network and to study together.

If you do not have a Discord account yet, you may create one here, all you need is your email address. Discord can be used via the browser, but for a user-friendly interface, the desktop version is recommended. 

(Please notice: This course is seperate from the course of the faculty “Physikstudium-Info”.)

We have a Moodle course, where you find serveral information concerning studying and a collection of teaching materials like e.g. scripts or examination protocolls from previous years. You may enroll to this course after you have received your official RUB account.

The student council is as well present on WhatsApp. You may contact us via this link.

We have created a WhatsApp group for Master freshman, which can be used to exchange information and to establish contacts. We will also use the group to provide some useful information in the beginning, but in the long term we refer to our newsletter

We use the newsletter to inform you about events which we organize, of course in well-measured intervals. Sign up and we will keep you up to date. 

*In order to prevent abuse, you will not find the links to our Discord Server and the WhatsApp group on the website. You should receive extra information from us at the beginning of the new semester which contains among other things the links.
