Many institutions and programmes help school students to explore the world of academia and the university cosmos and provide information on individual paths to university.
Junge Uni (Young University) is the umbrella term for all programmes offered to school students at RUB. It invites school students to visit the campus and learn more about academic courses, but also about specific disciplines.
The RUB talent scouts look after students attending vocational colleges, grammar schools and comprehensive schools in Bochum and the Ennepe-Ruhr district who are looking for support in planning their future. Talent scouts are on the lookout for the sometimes hidden talents of the students – these are not necessarily reflected in their school grades. Anyone who would like to get support, or who shows exceptional commitment or individual abilities, will find advice and a sympathetic ear from our talent scouts.
Former school students from the NRW Talent Scouting programme who are now pursuing a degree at Ruhr-Universität Bochum or who wish to stay in touch with their talent scouts can exchange ideas at the talent network meeting.
