How to manage my studies:

Events and workshops specifically on academic skills

Many international students have completed their first degree at a different university. Due to cultural differences, some learning and studying techniques or methodological approaches may be new to you. For this reason, we offer events in which you can discover and explore some essential academic working techniques. Last but not least, these events and workshops offer you a good opportunity to exchange ideas and make contacts with other students.

These events are aimed at all international students who want to find their way around the academic culture in Germany and are looking for new learning strategies, no matter what stage of your studies you are in.

All of these events are free of charge for all students.

We currently offer courses on the following topics:

  • Time management and semester planning
  • Critical thinking
  • Learning techniques
  • Structured and efficient reading
  • Exam preparation
  • ...

The schedule for the current semester can be found on the website How to manage your studies.

It is also possible to arrange a personal consultation on any of the above topics, e.g. if you cannot attend the events due to time constraints.
