Current information in relation with the Corona crisis

In connection with the containment of the corona spread, the university has taken various measures in accordance with the requirements of the state government. These are subject to regular adjustments. We endeavor to publish the current measures that relate to the area of ​​study and teaching.

  • Courses:
    • All courses at the University of Tübingen will only be offered in online formats in the summer semester.

    • The department strives to have a large part of the courses in the form of online courses, some events have to be postponed and a few will be canceled. In the course catalog Alma it is stated for each course whether and if so how it is offered. There is also a link to the course website:

      • Analysis 1 / Mathematik für Physiker 1: Sa, 30.5., 10:00-12:00, Room N03

      • Analysis 2 / Mathematik für Physiker 3: We, 27.5., 16:00-18:00, Room N03 + N05

      • Lineare Algebra 1 / Mathematik für Physiker 2: Mo, 8.6., 8:00-10:00, Room N06

      • Numerik - The written exam is replaced by oral exams; appointments are made directly with Prof. Prohl.

      • Integrations- und Maßtheorie - The written exam is replaced by oral exams; appointments are made directly with Prof. Deitmar.

      • Graphentheorie: Mi, 10.6., 10:00-13:00, Room N14.

      • Mathematik für Naturwissenschaftler 1: Mo 8.6., 16:30-18:30, Link zur Hörsaaleinteilung (rechtzeitig vor der Klausur)

      • Mathematik für Biologen 1: Mo, 12.10., 14:00-17:00, Room N03 + N07.

      • Mathematik 1 für Informatiker: Mi, 10.6., 8:15-10:15, Room N03, N06, N07

    • With the help of the student council, the department initiated a special mentoring program for first-year students in the bachelor’s courses by students of higher semesters (from the fourth semester). For questions or if you want to help, you can contact Sophia Jahns.

    • The lecture period for the winter semester 2020/21 only starts on November 2, 2020 and lasts until February 26, 2021.

  • Exams:
    • The university has now issued guidelines for the execution of exams and oral exams. More on these can be found on the website of the university on the corona crisis. We strive to schedule new dates for the canceled exams and oral exams of the past winter semester. To make an appointment for an oral exam, please contact the examiner or his secretariat directly. We plan to inform you about the new dates for the exams at this place.

    • There are separate rules for state examination tests, about which the students concerned have been informed directly.

    • In very few individual cases, examiners may switch to alternative forms of examination that do not require direct personal contact, insofar as this is justified and can be implemented in terms of examination technology. In this case, the students concerned will be informed directly by the examiner.

    • Rules for the course degree work in Analysis 1 + 2 and Linear Algebra 1 + 2:

      • The pending post-tests for the courses of the winter semester were offered. Students who took part in the exercise classes for one of these courses in the winter semester and were admitted to the test, but who have not yet passed, we recommend taking part in the exercise classes again in the summer semester. To acquire admission to the test for the course of the summer semester, however, participation is sufficient from the announcement of the result of the (hopefully prompt) follow-up tests of the winter semester.

      • The tests in the courses on Analysis 1 + 2 and Linear Algebra 1 + 2 are not carried out in the attendance format in the summer semester. They either take place in online format or are replaced by other tasks. The respective lecturer provides information about this.

    • If the postponement of exams for individual students leads to a deadline for the completion of an examination, the student is not responsible for this and the deadline is extended. If there are other special hardships (e.g. due to a change of university, stays abroad, etc.), the students concerned should contact the examiner or the chair of the examination board. We are trying to find a solution.

    • In order to be able to take exams in the summer semester 2020, enrollment in the summer semester is mandatory. Please do not miss the registration for the summer semester.

  • Fees:
    • If, due to the postponement of exams, enrollment is required in the summer semester 2020, which would otherwise not have been necessary, the usual enrollment and tuition fees must be paid for the enrollment.

    • If the enrollment does not have to be too long, a refund of part of the fees is possible under certain circumstances. The Student Administration can provide further information.

Further information can be found on the  web pages of the university concerning the corona crisis.

Courses & Programmes

The department offers purely scientific study programs as well as study programs leading to an educational degree. All study programs lead to Bachelor and Master degrees. In our study programs students get a solid foundation in the basic areas of mathematics and have the opportunity to choose from the wide range of specialisations offered at our department in teaching as well as in science:

Start of studies in the summer semester

Since the summer semester 2017, it is possible to start our study programmes Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Education in the summer semester. We offer all compulsory courses (Analysis 1, Linear Algebra 1) of the first semester in the summer semester and all compulsory courses (Analysis 2, Linear Algebra 2) of the second semester in the winter semester. From the third semester onwards, the courses are modularised in such a way that it is irrelevant whether the course was started in the winter or summer semester. When you start your studies in the summer semester, you can be sure that the studies can be carried out without delay. If you have any questions about starting your studies in the summer semester, please contact the Dean of Study Affairs or the Counceling office of the department of mathematics.
