The Departmental Advisors
are listed on the degree programs website under your program of study.
In addition to the Central Student Advisory Service (Zentrale Studienberatung, or ZSB), which is the university’s general advising office for prospective and current students on all questions regarding studies (preparation for studies, beginning of studies, course of studies, and completion of studies), there is also decentralized academic advising at the faculties.
The appointed departmental advisors (professors, lecturers, academic staff) answer subject-specific questions about university studies: for example, about the content, structure, focus of the subject, performance requirements, recognition of previous academic achievements, questions about individual study planning and study organization. In addition to the appointed departmental advisors, all professors also provide subject advising in their areas of appointment.
