We will make time for your concerns!
We offer face-to-face consultations (please wear an FFP2 mask) in our rooms in the Juridicum building, online consultations via Zoom or consultations by phone.
Please phone ahead to make an appointment: +49 851 509 1154 (Mo-Fr 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon) or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have very in-depth questions on a degree programme or subject, particularly if you are at an advanced stage of your programme, please contact the relevant Programme Adviser.
The Student Services Association's Social Counsellors provide pastoral support. For example, you can contact them to discuss financial difficulties, legal advice related to tenancy agreements, and for advice on studying as a parent or carer.
If you have questions about career prospects, degree programmes at other universities, vocational education schemes or job referrals, you can make an appointment with the local job centre / employment agency.
International degree-seeking students can also see the iStudi coach for advice.
The study options page contains more information about each degree programme. Our infosheets give you comprehensive information on any programme and are available from the 'Downloads' box on each programme's web page.
Printed infosheets are available from your Academic Adviser.
