Welcome to the Service Centre School Contacts!

The Service Centre School Contacts is the central contact point for schools and students in the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. The dean's office, the chair for didactics of physics and the student advisors of the faculty are involved.

The Service Centre School Contacts coordinates the ongoing cooperation of the faculty with schools in the vicinity of the Ruhr-Universität. Our goals:

  • To promote the attractiveness and quality of physics teaching.
  • Awakening children's and young people's enthusiasm for physics at an early age.
  • to provide student teachers with a practical education.

Current faculty offers for schools and teachers can be conveniently sent to you by signing up for our mailing list.

There are many information events for students who are thinking about studying at RUB, especially at the beginning of each year. Students receive information on various topics, for example:

  • Start of studies
  • The right choice of subjects
  • Financing options

Pupils can also actively get to know university life and attend events before they start their studies. More information can be foundhere.

In addition, students can contact our advisor Dr. Dirk Meyer at any time for advice on studying physics at the RUB.
