Application & Consulting
We do not host all study programs we contribute to ourselves, but cooperate closely with a number of faculties. Applications for admission to a study program must therefore be directed to the respective faculty. However, we will be happy to provide you with advice on orientation at any time. Your first point of contact for student counselling is the teaching coordination team at the department. There are no fixed office hours, you can contact us at any time. For more complex matters, however, it is advisable to make an appointment in advance.
