Consulting Emphasis

General Academic Counselling advises and supports pupils and all other prospective students regarding questions about study choices and study decisions. During the course of study, students will find help here if they have any questions about studying or if they encounter problems relating to their study progress.

  • Study orientation, study choice and study preparation
  • Study contents, course of study structure and study requirements
  • Change of degree programme or university
  • Study-relevant personal problems
  • Information about other counselling services and other universities

Like all student counselling services at state universities, General Academic Counselling is guided by recognised standards when it comes to its counselling activities. Accordingly, these are

  • individual,
  • neutral,
  • unbiased as to the result, and
  • confidential.
