Zentrale Studienberatung

The Student Advice Service offered by the Leibniz University Hannover is the central contact point for students at the different universities in Hannover.

The information and advice offered depends on the individual needs and concerns of those seeking the advice. The Central Student Advice Service provides objective and unbiased advice on all aspects of study. This is done by way of drop-in consultation or appointment, when information and confidential advice is offered on all questions and problems closely or broadly related to your studies. Further, the Student Advice Service holds many information and orientation events at the schools in the region, career fairs and at the university.
