If you find yourself in financial difficulties during your studies, don't bury your head in the sand, but contact us early on. We - the staff of the Counseling Service for Student Life - will work out your individual options with you and point out further assistance options. The counseling sessions are confidential and can be conducted anonymously.
You are welcome to prepare yourself for our meeting. It is helpful, for example, to create a financial overview of your income and expenses. This will make it easier for you to find a solution to your financial problems. Checklist
