Welcome at the Department of Natural Sciences at the Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg in Rheinbach.

We are pleased that you decided to start your studies in our department.

a.) Checklist for international BSc-students (foreigners, BSc Applied Biology)

For a smooth start to your studies, please work through the checklist for BSc-freshmen step by step:

Step 1: Self registration via MIA

First go to MIA to start the self-registration. This step is obligatory to get your login data for central university services.
During the self-registration process you will be asked to assign a password for the access of your university email address. You will receive your login ID (the so-called department code, e.g. mmuste1s) which enables you to log in to most university services, too.
Link to MIA: https://mia.h-brs.de/sspr/public/activate

 

⇒ Step 2: Email-account  (central mail server for students)

Upon enrolment, e-mail access is provided to all students at the university. The structure of the email address is: firstname.surname@smail.bcw.h-brs.de

Access: department code + self-assigned password via MIA

⇒ Step 3: Apply for access to Student Information System SIS

here you will find important study-related information (certificate of enrolment, re-registration, transcript, etc.) and you may register for exams
Important note: you first have to click on "Apply for Access ?". An initial password will then be sent to your student e-mail inbox.

Access: department code + requested password

Link to  SIS-login or apply for access: https://sis.h-brs.de/pp/sis/en?UserAcc=Gast&DokID=DiasSWeb&SID=&Action=Login

 

⇒ Step 4: Library Access and passwort change:

Here you may borrow and have access to books, novels, audio books, magazines as well as digital media.
Access: library number (to find on the back of your student ID) + initial password (date of birth in format: ddmmyy, example: 130502)

Important note: please immediatly change your password (for LEA and the catalogue) via "account - user data - change password".

⇒ Step 5: Access LEA (Central teaching and learning platform)

Here you will find, among others, teaching materials for your studies (e.g. important information for first semester students, current information, lectures, lecture notes and exercise sheets).

Access: department code + library password.   Your password is linked to your library password. The password can consequently only be changed on the catalogue website.

Short instruction for first semester students: https://www.h-brs.de/files/related/lea_short_instruction_for_students_1.pdf

 

⇒ Step 6: Participation in the LEA course "First Semester Information_Introduction and Orientation Weeks" or in the corresponding study group within the course

Please register for the LEA course to receive all the important information - especially for the introductory and orientation week and a good start to your studies

⇒ Step 7: Buying a lab coat

For your lab work you’ll need a lab coat. Make sure to get one in time (long and made from cotton).

Lab Coat:

In the lab you have to wear a lab coat. This lab coat will stay in the lab during the complete course. Afterwards it has to be autoclaved, washed and ironed. Whereby the autoclavation is done at the university, washing and ironing is your part at home!

So, you may need two lab coats when having other courses, too! Before buying them, please note that only white lab coats ending at your knees or at your calves are allowed! Coloured or shorter lab coats are not suitable.

The lab coat has to be labelled with your full last name (not more!) inside at the collar and additionally on the pocket on the left side of the coat, using a water proof pen. On the picture the places are marked in red.

Avoid any other drawings and writings on the lab coat as during autoclavation bleeding (to other lab coats) is possible. Salacious or religious drawings or comments etc. may cause an exclusion of the course!
