Yes, courses are organised during the month of August at the University of Liège. They are optional, not free and allow students to discover university teaching methods (syllabus, ex cathedra courses, questions...), review important subject points and associate them with the 1st year baccalaureate subject, familiarize themselves with the rhythm of the days of classes at the university, check their working method and correct it if necessary and become aware of their facilities and difficulties in order to react as well as possible.
The courses offered for future bioengineers are in mathematics, physics, chemistry, French language, working methods and digital information technologies.
Preparatory courses in mathematics are also organised in the first week of September at Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech. Attention: this session is exclusively reserved for students who have taken the 4h (or less) math course in Rhaeto and who have already registered at the Faculty.
