Beginning of your studies

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Freie Universität Berlin!

We would like to welcome you to the winter semester 2020/21! Regardless of your subject or degree program and whether you are new to the FU or not - we have put together the most important information and links for you.

Starting November 2nd, there will be no teaching at our department that involves physical presence; it will all be online.
Please use the offerings such as the Mentoring program or the Discord server to get in contact with others and get your questions answered.
