Student Counselling – Creating Orientation
You can sometimes get lost in the diversity of a degree programme. Whether at the beginning, at graduation or even in between – there are always a lot of questions to be answered. The student counselling facilities are there to lend a helping hand and keep an eye on the big picture: Either as a general point of contact in the form of the Student Counselling Service or within the individual departments tailored to the circumstances of the individual degree programmes.
Whether incoming or outgoing – the International Office advises young adults about studying at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam as well as about the possibilities of a stay abroad for students of our university.
Financing of studies
A course of study should not only correspond to one's own wishes and ideas. It must also be financially feasible so that a degree is secured. We offer special advice on topics such as BaföG, scholarships and other grants.
