Study Network FAQ

What is the study network?

The study network is a program of the faculty for the professional, organizational and personal support of the students in the context of the study entrance phase. It integrates the programs "Tutorial" and "Physics Helpdesk" into an extended overall concept.

Who are the scouts?

The scouts are students from higher semesters who are motivated to support their fellow students during the start of their studies. They are happy to support you with their expertise and experience, be it by advising you on your studies, the choice of modules, the follow-up of lectures, or by providing professional explanations of assignments or lecture content.

What are the offerings during office hours?

The Study Network offers daily office hours in the student workroom ('Studiraum') on NB 03 South. During the office hours, you will find professional support, for example, in solving exercise notes or preparing lecture content. We also help you with the organization of your exam preparation and your studies as a whole.

What workshops does the study network offer?

The workshops are organized by the scouts and are based on the needs of the students. Topics can be both technical and organizational in nature. The format of the workshops depends on the topics, from short presentations by the scouts to independent development of solutions in groups, everything is conceivable.

Why do the scouts visit the learning groups?

For the lectures Physics I/II and Mathematical Methods of Physics weekly study groups take place, which are led by students of higher semesters. The scouts regularly visit the study groups in order to be available as contact persons for technical, organizational and personal concerns regarding the studies.

Where can I find more information about the study network?

All information about the study network can be found in the Moodle course of the study network. Also, feel free to drop by the office hours and talk to a scout in person!
