Students will generally need extensive support especially at the outset of their studies. The use of the “Module Handbooks”, the regulations concerning exams, the complex course programme – all these will look slightly daunting to beginners.


The departmental student advisors – Dr. Heike Mißler, Dr. Arlette Warken and Dr. Cornelia Gerhardt – together with many other colleagues you might ask, as well as the student representatives (“Fachschaft”), can assist you in the understanding of these documents, in the selection of courses, in putting together a daily schedule of lectures and courses, and any other questions you might have.
