- Nugel then began her studies at Berlin University, attending lectures in mathematics, physics and German.
- It is worth looking for a moment at the mathematics department where Nugel was receiving her education.
- Nugel attended lectures by Frobenius and Schur, who at the time was a dynamic young lecturer.
- After three terms of study in Berlin, Nugel moved to the University of Munich where she spent one term attending lectures by Ferdinand Lindemann and Aurel Voss.
- In receiving a doctorate in mathematics, Nugel became one of the first German women to receive such a degree.
- Later in July Nugel passed the state examinations qualifying her to teach mathematics, physics and German in a Gymnasium.
- Immediately after passing these examinations, Nugel was appointed as a teacher in the Augusta school on Cottbus.
