The project

Student health promotion at UdS

On February 1, 2021, we launched our initiative project for student health promotion at Saarland University, which is funded by the Techniker Krankenkasse!

You surely know it too: Studying is usually associated with many uncertainties, such as moving out of the parental home, the transition between studying and working as well as finding one's identity as an adult. In addition, there is increased pressure to perform due to the modularization of degree programs. Furthermore, the current pandemic situation confronts students with major bio-psycho-social challenges.

This is exactly where our project comes in: In order to get you through your studies fit and healthy and to prepare you adequately for your later professional life, starting in the summer semester of 2021, the project fit4more - healthy studying will bundle previously existing individual activities of different actors at the UdS, expand them systematically and demand-driven and integrate them into the everyday life of students.  

The objectives of the project are the development of sustainable health competencies both for the time of study but also for later professional life, as well as the conceptualisation and introduction of a study-accompanying health certificate in the medium term. The topics physical activity, nutritionmental health, and additional qualifications are the main focus.  Based on your survey results, topics such as dealing with exam anxiety or healthy sleep will also be included in the offer. The project will also be scientifically evaluated by the UdS Medical Faculty, Medical Psychology Department.

The goal is to create a healthy working, living and learning environment for you.
