Information for teachers and school administrators
University and school – they go together because both institutions are committed to educational work. We would like to establish a lively exchange between the schools in the region and the University of Bayreuth in a partnership of equals, because your pupils are our students, the talents and specialists of tomorrow.
Our offers are designed to support you in providing your pupils with targeted advice and preparing them for university studies. Together with you, we would like to encourage new cooperations between university and school, honour long-standing partnerships, further promote the regional networking of the University of Bayreuth with Upper Franconian schools, and entrench the University of Bayreuth and its educational offers even more firmly in the region.
Early study – information for schools
Of course, there are always students in every year group who are particularly gifted and for whom the required school workload is simply not enough. Here you can find out how Early Study is organised and what you as a school might want to consider.
Pupil Study Programme
The Pupil Study Programme is intended for pupils who wish to study a subject in depth. They choose a degree programme and usually attend regular first semester courses one day a week. In the process, they are enrolled with guest auditor status and have access to the infrastructure of the University of Bayreuth via their campus card. Like regular students, the pupils can provide proof of assessment (e.g. written exam, seminar presentation), which can be used in a relevant study programme later.
The Unitag is a programme of the Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs and the Ministerialbeauftragter für die Gymnasien in Oberfranken (Ministerial Commissioner for Grammar Schools in Upper Franconia). It is aimed at particularly capable and motivated pupils in grade 11 of grammar school. The young people can attend courses from the regular course programme at the University of Bayreuth on Fridays. Schools suggest suitable students to the Ministerial Commissioner, who then selects potential participants.
The Universitäre Oberstufe (University Advanced School) is a special programme of the Markgräfin-Wilhelmine-Gymnasium Bayreuth in cooperation with the UBT, in which pupils replace their scientific and project seminars with early studies. For questions on this project, please contact Kompetenzzentrum für Begabtenförderung.
