Registration now possible

Exciting lectures, interactive workshops and excursions: Paderborn University invites pupils to get to know various study and career opportunities with several programmes. While the mentoring programme "look upb" gives schoolgirls practical insights into the STEM subjects (mathematics, computer science, natural sciences and technology), both girls and boys can explore the STEM world at the "Spring University". Anyone interested can now register for the events free of charge.

Spring University "girls only" and "all gender"

During the first week of the Easter holidays, Paderborn University's "Women Shaping the Information Society" (fgi) project is offering school students a varied STEM taster course in the form of the "Spring University". From Monday, 25 March to Thursday, 28 March, prospective students will have the opportunity to take part in exciting lectures and interactive workshops in the fields of mathematics, computer science, business informatics, chemistry, physics, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, computer engineering and mechanical engineering. The taster programme is offered in two formats: The spring university "girls only" can be attended by schoolgirls in years 8 to 13. All information about the programme and registration options can be found on the website of the "Frühlings-Uni girls only". At the same time, the "all gender" spring university, which is supported by the "MINT@UniPB" project, offers a programme for both female and male high school students. Anyone interested in taking part in this programme can register on the "Frühlings-Uni all gender" website. Free registration for both programmes is possible until 10 March.

"look upb": STEM mentoring programme for schoolgirls

Schoolgirls can also get a taste of "real university air", ask numerous questions about studying and get to know student life better with the STEM mentoring programme "look upb". This programme allows high school students to attend lectures, workshops, excursions and mentoring meetings together with a female student for a semester, providing a practical insight into the STEM degree programmes at Paderborn University. A supporting programme with further events such as an excursion to a regional company rounds off the offer. Interested schoolgirls can register on the "look upb" website until 16 March.

"NRW-Technikum": trial study programme for high school graduates

The "NRW-Technikum", Paderborn University's career and study orientation programme for female school leavers with an interest in STEM subjects, will enter its fourth round in the winter semester 2024/25. From September 2024 to February 2025, young women with a (technical) high school diploma can gain a practical insight into study and career opportunities in the STEM field within the six-month programme consisting of a taster course and paid company internship. Through workshops, team events, company tours and counselling sessions, they can try out whether the STEM sector actually matches their skills and preferences. Anyone interested can register for the programme from now until the end of June on the "NRW-Technikum" website.
