Study Interest Test (SIT) - Which study programme suits me?

To find out which degree programme (and place of study) suits you, you should have clarity about your interests, inclinations and talents. The interest test from the Hochschulkompass will help you with this. The results can be confirming or surprising and are intended above all to encourage you to take a closer look at study subjects. You are welcome to come to the student advisory service with the test result to discuss it further.
