Please contact us if you have any questions or if you would like to make use of our offer.


Taster Course

First try, then study!

Many future students have only a very vague picture of their desired course of studies, so that a binding choice of university and course of studies is very difficult.

In order to give a first insight into the study at the Environmental Campus, pupils can complete a trial study. This is an easy way to answer questions such as

  • "Is studying the right thing for me at all?"
  • "How does a lecture actually work?"
  • "Does the course suit me?"
  • "Is the Environmental Campus the right university for me?"

before your studies. Due to the unbureaucratic processing, nothing stands in the way of the taster course apart from registration (no previous knowledge of the subject, no guest hearing certificate, etc.). It is possible to live on campus for up to one week, attend lectures, participate in student activities and eat in the refectory.

You will find further information on the trial course at the Website of UCB-Contact.

Then just give us a call!

We are looking forward to seeing you!

Information Days/Open Door Days

Another way to gain an insight into campus life is to visit the Environmental Campus Birkenfeld as part of the Information Day/Info Evening or the Open Day.

Information evenings or days or other possibilities for career and study orientation usually take place in spring and late summer/autumn and are mainly (but not exclusively) aimed at pupils, prospective students, parents and teachers.

The Open Day offers an extensive programme for the whole family and usually takes place every two years in May. In addition to pupils, prospective students, parents and teachers, people from the region enjoy the different facets of our location every year.

Our students once faced the same challenges as you. Would you rather draw on their experience and ask your questions directly to students? No problem, simply send an e-mail to: frag-die-studies(at)
