Due to the current contact restrictions, the Student Advice Centre of RWTH Aachen University now offers digital events.


Finding the right degree course is not an easy task. This is why the student advising offices at German universities strive to support prospective students in their decision-making process. However, since many of the in-person events cannot currently take place, the Student Advice Centre of RWTH Aachen University has now devised a range of virtual guidance offers. These offers include online lectures on how to apply for university placement, chats with students, half-day workshops, campus tours, as well as individual counseling sessions via telephone or Skype.

“Normally, we are very busy between Easter and summer vacation. We visit numerous schools, give lectures, present RWTH at trade fairs, and many school groups come to visit the RWTH campus to get a taste of university life,” reports Dr. Mandana Biegi, head of the Student Advice Center at RWTH. “Because of the school closures, high school seniors, for a long time, did not know what was going to happen with their final exams and whether they would be able to graduate,” adds Biegi. But now they can focus again on what’s beyond high school. Therefore, the Student Advice Centre is now ready to support and advise students from a safe distance.

Here you will find an overview of the digital offers in German.
