Counseling services

Our social counseling informs and advises you when neccessary on a variety of study related and everyday questions, especially on student financing.

Our aim is to develop, together with you, individual concepts of financing in the various phases of your studies. The focus is on finding one unique, optimal combination of financing possibilities that suits you. 

The diverse range of counseling services include, among others:

  • Working during the studies
  • Nationwide bank loans and scholarships
  • Health insurance
  • Accident insurance
  • Wohngeld and Arbeitslosengeld II
  • Rundfunkbeitrag
  • International student card (ISIC-Card)
    see also 
    You can order the ISIC-Card online or you can come to us: we will issue you the ISIC-Card by appointment.

By the way, we also help for example with book allowances, free meals, subsidies in very finacially tense situations .

The social counseling is always free of charge for you!
