The Central Student Advisory Service is the most important contact point and source of information for prospective students interested in studying at Saarland University. The Service provides individually tailored and professional advice on all questions relating to a Master's degree programme. Typical questions include: What requirements do I need to meet in order to be accepted onto the Master's programme of my choice? Which combinations of subjects are allowed? What do I need to be aware of before applying for admission? The Central Student Advisory Service also provides information on financing your studies, studying part-time and many other areas.

Questions that specifically concern a particular Master's degree programme are best addressed directly to the relevant programme or course advisor. Course advisors are always academic instructors who teach the subjects of interest and they can provide you with tips and guidance on such questions as how to specialize during your Master's degree or how to acquire recognition of academic credits that you obtained at another university or in another course of study.

Master's students who are looking for advice on their later career paths or who wish to acquire key world-of-work skills will find assistance at Saarland University's Career Center. The Career Center provides students with careers advice and access to job and employment databases. It also offers training courses in communication and management skills, facilitates networking with useful contacts in business and industry and can help students find a mentor to assist them in preparing for their career start in a particular sector.

Would you like to spend part of your degree programme studying at a university in another country? Do the study regulations for your degree course require you to gain work experience or to complete an internship abroad? The International Office at Saarland University coordinates the university's international exchange programmes and partnerships and provides advice and guidance on studying and work placements abroad. The International Office is also the first port of call for international students studying at Saarland University.

The University's Disability Support Services (KSB) offers study-related support and advice to students with disabilities or with chronic healthcare needs. Areas addressed include: the resources and support facilities for disabled students available at Saarland University, study assistance (note takers, exam scribes, disability allowance, etc.), student accommodation, financial concerns, study-abroad periods, and any assistance needed to deal with specific problems that students may be faced with.
