Try out studying - school university during the 2024 holidays

We invite you to get to know our university, various degree programmes and the city of Freiberg during the Saxon summer holidays 2024.

Students interested in studying from year 10 can take part in the project weeks. Year 10 and above can take part in the project weeks:

  • participate in specially designed lectures, experiments, lab tours, excursions or competitions
  • explore different areas of science
  • try out what it "feels like", being a student
  • slip into the role of researchers and students
  • discover interesting career prospects
  • make contacts
  • spend eventful, exciting and fun days with peers at TU Bergakademie Freiberg.

Let yourself be infected by the enthusiasm of our students and researchers for their subject area. Discover the city of Freiberg as a place to study and live and make your first contacts with the university and its many members. We look forward to welcoming you.

School University programme

"The one-week school university is a great opportunity to gain a detailed insight into the degree programmes. During this "taster week", we were allowed to carry out laboratory experiments and even visited the Reiche Zeche mine. I also got to meet great new people who have the same interests."

Saskia, Year 12, participant in the "Spaceship Earth" and "Fascination of Geoengineering" school university weeks

Schüleruniversität BioNanoTec-Woche

"I really enjoyed the BioNanoTec week and learnt a lot of interesting things. Our supervisors, the lab staff and other employees at TU Freiberg were very friendly and answered our questions competently. It was also very practical that we were allowed to try out our own experiments and technical equipment at the university. The interaction with the other interested participants was also very pleasant and I quickly made some friends, some of whom I am still in contact with.

I would definitely recommend the BioNanoTec week to anyone who is interested."

Anton, Year 11, participant in the "BioNanoTec week"
