Trial study - Try it before you enroll

School pupils from 10th to 12th class, and any other prospective students, are invited to come and find out about the content of individual courses, later fields of work and career prospects, study conditions at the BTU, admission requirements and enrollment deadlines in an intensive way during the three to five day 'Trial Study Days'. As well as offering 'real' lectures, the 'Trial Study Days' offers special lectures for school students, excursions, and talks with students and professors; an all-round studying experience which will facilitate their choice of individual study programmes. Also not to be missed are the evening city-explorations with their cultural, sightseeing, and entertainment opportunities.
