Unfortunately, we do not have a complete English version of our website yet, but we’re working on it. Stay tuned for further updates. In the meantime we will provide the most important information for our international students here.
We, the FSinfo („Fachschaft für Informatik und Mathematik“), are a group of students representing the students of the Department of Informatics and Mathematics. This includes committee activities, general and individual guidance for students, a set of events and various other activities. Basically, whenever you have a question or concern regarding your studies, just ask us. We will either give you an answer ourselves or tell you which authority you will need to contact. See below for some ways to contact us.
Don’t get confused with the different equivalent notations of „Fachschaft für Informatik und Mathematik“. All of the following notations are equal and mean the same:
- Fachschaft für Informatik und Mathematik
- Fachschaftsvertretung für Informatik und Mathematik
- Fachschaft der Fakultät für Informatik und Mathematik
- Fachschaftsvertretung der Fakultät für Informatik und Mathematik
The graduate course M.Sc. in Computer Science began to be offered in English for the first time in the winter semester 2014. We don’t know how many international students will join our Department in the coming term. This leaves us in a novel situation, however we are excited to meet you. Please accept our apologies for any inconveniences arising from the situation.
Apart from that, international students come here as exchange students for one or two semesters. You’re just as welcome and we hope you will have a great time here in Passau.
Starting on September 28th 2015, a two-week program introduces our freshmen to the university. This program is called orientation week (German: Orientierungswoche, short: O-Woche), is intended for the bachelor freshmen and is mostly in German. In the summer semester, it includes a greeting with some basic information, an introduction to the department’s computer systems and some social activites. However, we want to organize something similar for the international students. Please let us know if you have any suggestions regarding the content.
The lecture period starts on October 12th. We recommend coming to Passau at least two weeks earlier to get to know the town and the campus before the actual courses start.
We try to collect a few useful links for international students who are coming to Passau. Please let us know if you come across any other helpful websites.
