Individual advice

The Central Student Advisory Service answers your questions about studying in a personal advisory meeting, in a telephone conversation, by e-mail or in a video conference. The topics on which we advise:

  • What requirements do I need to meet to study?
  • What are the application deadlines?
  • Is there an NC?
  • How can I get to know the university?
  • Can I study without a high school diploma?
  • Is it better to start in the summer or winter semester?
  • When do I have to look for a place in a dormitory?
  • What career prospects do I have with this degree program?
  • Do I need an internship for my Bachelor's degree?
  • What is the application process for a Master's program?

Übergang Schule – Universität

  • The change from school to university is an exciting experience for all prospective students. Even choosing a course of study is a difficult matter, and the wide range of courses available throughout Germany does not make the decision any easier.
  • Also, first-year students often have to realize quickly that there are fundamental differences between attending school and studying at university. For example, a high degree of independence is generally required in university studies, and the individual support one is used to from school is not possible in every course of study.
  • It is therefore all the more important to prepare well for the start of your studies so that nothing stands in the way of a successful start!

We can offer you the perfect transition from school to university with our Steiger-College program. Take a look and apply for it.
