Social counselling

The social counselling service provides you with information and advice on a wide range of questions concerning your studies and everyday life, especially on financing your studies and on your claims against service providers.
Our aim is to work with you to develop individual concepts for financing in the various phases of your studies. It is all about a custom-fit, optimal combination of the various financing options.

The diverse range of consulting services includes

  •     Study financing
  •     Health insurance
  •     Housing allowance and unemployment benefit II
  •     Broadcasting contribution
  •     Studying with child
  •     Studying with chronic diseases and disabilities
  •     International Student Identity Card (ISIC-Card). You can order the ISIC-Card online or you can come to us at our location at Wolfgang-Langenbeck-Str. 5 (Hochhaus IV): We will be happy to issue the ISIC-Card by separate appointment.

By the way, we also help with book grants, free meals, grants in financially very tense situations.

The social counselling is always free of charge for you!
