It is undoubtedly RWTH Aachen University’s paramount aim to provide students with sound scientific qualifications and to deliver outstanding graduates.

To ensure that students can cope with the demands of their studies now and in their everyday working lives later, the University is, however, also committed to fostering student health and well-being.

We want to provide students with better personal health resources and help them minimize health risks. We are also concerned with giving the future managers and decision-makers among our students the skills to later practice a health-promoting management style.

Student health management aims to integrate these aspects into students’ everyday lives in a sustainable way and to enable them to study, learn, and live healthily.

We Need Your Input

Please get in touch if you have any bright ideas and would like to be actively involved in developing measures geared towards students' needs.

What are our goals at a glance?

The RWTH Student Health Management team would like to:

  • help students make healthy lifestyle choices during their studies and in later life
  • promote knowledge, attitudes, and skills for creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle
  • with your input, design measures according to your specific needs
  • expand the health resources offered to students and help reduce health risks
  • be the contact for both students and institutions on health-related issues
  • put healthcare actors in touch with institutions and provide a common platform for exchange on health-related matters
  • support the RWTH healthcare actors in their work

Techniker Krankenkasse is supporting RWTH Aachen University in implementing this project.
