Unitag in Bayreuth (Uni-Day)

For gifted students who wish to broaden their horizons beyond school lessons, the University of Bayreuth offers Unitag. Once a week, particularly motivated young people swap the classroom for the lecture hall.

This is how Unitag works

Every Friday during a semester, school is swapped for university. Unitag participants are released from regular classes by the school administration and attend individually determined courses. The students choose these courses from the general range of courses below.

The Ministry of Education reimburses travel costs to Unitag, and participants also have insurance cover. Students are responsible for catching up on the school material they have missed.

Further information on Unitag can also be found on the homepage of the Ministerialbeauftragten für die Gymnasien in Oberfranken (Ministerial Commissioner for Grammar Schools in Upper Franconia) under Sonstige Förderprogramme“.

How to take part in Unitag

Unitag is a project of the Bavarian State Ministry for Education and Cultural Affairs and the University of Bayreuth, in cooperation with the responsible Ministerial Commissioner for Upper Franconia. It is a type of early study and is aimed at particularly capable and motivated pupils in grade 11 of grammar school. Those who would like to take part in Unitag should raise the matter at their school. The school will then suggest suitable pupils to the Ministerial Representative, who then selects potential participants.
