Are you unsure about what to study? Would you like to consider your study options in a small group with other prospective students? Then you’re welcome to take part in one of our workshops, either on choosing the right degree programme or on how people perceive the teaching profession!
They are aimed at prospective students from German school year 11 and above.

Please note that the content of the orientation workshop and that of the online workshop is similar. Please choose whichever format is best suited to your needs.
Unless otherwise stated, these workshops are held in German only.

Study Orientation Workshop

In the orientation workshop you will deal with your own approach to choosing a degree programme. You will get to know different methods to determine your own abilities and (professional) goals. You will also receive tips on how to keep track when you are flooded with information.

The orientation workshop focuses on:

  • Assessing your current position: “Where do I stand?”
  • Developing prospects: “What are my options?”
  • Information management: “Where and how do I find what’s right for me?”

We will be happy to support you in your decision-making process even after the workshop – simply book an individual consultation with us.

The workshops are held inside the Student Service Centre (SSZ) at Goethestraße 6.

The workshop has shown me that there are lots of ways to make choosing a degree course easier. Thanks for showing them to us!

Seminar: “Teaching – my dream job?”

In this seminar, you will deal with the question of whether a teaching degree and working as a teacher are right for you. You will consider the typical tasks of teachers and identify what the profession requires in terms of your personality. Exercises and group activities will help you to reflect on your own pedagogical aptitude.

The teaching degree seminar focuses on:

  • The teacher’s professional profile
  • Tasks of the teacher
  • Requirements
  • Character traits

All workshops are held inside the Student Service Centre (SSZ) at Goethestraße 6.
