RWTH Information Event on June 26, 2018.


If you are in the midst of a course of study but have serious doubts about whether to continue with it, you are faced with the decision whether to try to complete it, transfer to another program, or terminate your studies. Such a decision raises many questions.

On Tuesday, June 26, 2018, the information event titled "Zweifel am Studium – finde deinen Weg" will attempt to find answers to such difficult questions. It will take place from 2 to 4pm at Generali Hall at the SuperC building, Templergraben 57 and is jointly offered by the city of Aachen, RWTH Aachen, FH Aachen, Forschungszentrum Jülich and the Employment Agency Aachen.

The event is targeted at those students who are considering terminating their studies at any one of the Aachen universities and offers an overview over alternatives or other educational options. Several adviisory bodies will be at hand to introduce themselves to the students, such as: Student Mentoring at RWTH, Student Advice Centres of both RWTH and FH, the "A Good Academic Start to Studies" project, the employment agency of Aachen, the vocational training programs at RWTH Aachen and Forschungszentrum Jülich, as well as the SWITCH und RESET program. Afterwards, students will have an opportunity to participate in individual advising sessions with the representatives of a given service provider.


The SWITCH project, founded in 2011, or the RESET program offered by the Chamber of Trade both offer support for university dropouts should they want to apply for a trainee position in a work-study program in the Aachen region. The goal is to shorten the amount of time of a vocational training program for those who have already been enrolled at university.
