At a glance

The “Helpdesk” is the central contact point for students, led by students at our faculty. It serves as “first aid” for questions revolving around basic orientation and the organization of one’s studies, and supports the faculty’s exam management, the student counseling and study office.

We can help you further with the following issues

  1. Using the AlmaWeb portal (application, registration, renewal of matriculation)
  2. Information and consultation about study programs, application process, and entrance requirements
  3. Module registration
  4. Individual study organization and semester planning
  5. Support of the faculty in the area of evaluation
  6. Assistance with the recognition of foreign credits
  7. Study organization in the context of ERASMUS+
