Your academic success is our concern! Contact us for individual counselling if you have personal concerns or problems, or take advantage of one of the competence training offers.

Individual counselling for students

Are you looking for a way to discuss your personal worries and needs during your studies confidentially and without professional bias? We will look for solutions together with you!

You can come to us with the following concerns

  • Starting difficulties in the study entry phase
  • Difficulties in the final phase of studies
  • Exam nerves
  • Doubts about studying
  • Considering a change of subject or university
  • or considering dropping out of studies

Our understanding of consulting

As student advisors, we will inform you about all questions concerning your studies and support you in making well-founded decisions in these matters. This is always very individual and the decision is ultimately made by you personally. The counselling is intended to help you help yourself. Everything discussed with us remains between us. We do not pass on any information about you, not even to university staff. Your questions and needs are at the centre of our open-ended counselling. The aim is to find a solution to your concerns. We take time for you, treat your concerns confidentially and provide neutral advice.

Skills training and support services

The Student Counselling Service offers subject-neutral competence training for students of the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam. The offer is free of charge and can be used by students of all departments.
