Help from the student council

Conflicts are normal and happen almost everywhere and every day. Conflicts are healthy, but if they stay unresolved, they become dangerous. Conflicts may occur due to misunderstandings, different perceptions or opposed interests. However, they are not necessarily harmful, but can be a fruitful path to changes. Mediation is a non-violent and constructive way of dispute resolution with the help of an independent third party. Each party is an expert in their very field. The parties are encouraged to responsibly and independently deal with problems in a constructive way.

Help from tutors

The Central Advice Service initiated a tutor project to help students who have just started university. You will find the tutors' contact details of the respective subjects in our A-Z list of courses

Advice, courses and advanced training in academic and creative writing

We do not believe that writing is something that just comes easy to some people and to others it does not. We think it is something you can train and with practice, you will get better. If you think you belong to those people who find it hard to write, come to SchreibenLernen - a place for people who want to develop their writing skills in exchange with others and under the supervision of trained writers.
