With success to your studies!

Study or training? Which subject area is particularly fun? In which area do your own strengths and abilities lie?
Can enjoyment, skills and talent be combined?

First test, then study

The WIN orientation study program at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg offers the opportunity to answer these or other open questions about one's own future by trying things out. In two semesters, students can choose from a range of courses in the fields of economics, law, engineering and natural sciences to suit their individual needs, and then try them out.

On the way to the right decision, examinations can already be written which, upon application, can be credited to a subsequently selected course of study. With the WIN orientation study program you are enrolled at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg with student status.

Take one or two semesters to try out a study program without consequences, but with many advantages.

The WIN orientation study program  will start again in the winter semester 2023/24.

The WIN orientation course starts again in the summer semester of 2024.

Basic idea of the WIN orientation study program

For high school graduates who are still undecided in their choice of study, because e.g.

  • It is not yet possible to draw conclusions about a subject of study from the school subjects
  • In the case of different areas of interest, several subjects of study are possible

The following conditions must be met for admission to the orientation study program:

  • General university entrance qualification, relevant subject-linked university entrance qualification or a certificate recognized as equivalent
  • Having not yet been enrolled at an institution of higher education.

  • Winter semester (October)
  • Summer semester (April)

1- 2 semesters

  • A certificate confirms the participation in the orientation study and the passed examinations with grades and ECTS credits
  • Upon application, passed module examinations can be recognized in a study program of the TU Bergakademie with a professionally qualifying degree

Semester fee: 94 euros
