Re-orientation

You are no longer sure whether your subject is still suitable for you? Are you considering studying another subject or changing to an apprenticeship? Here you will find initial information that can help you with a new orientation.

Use a personal conversation?

You do not yet know whether you want to change at all, whether you want to leave Konstanz or the university and there are many things that need to be considered? You are not sure what to do first? Come to the individual advisory service of the Central Student Advisory Service. We take the time to find out together with you, if you

  • want to give your subject another chance and how it can succeed.
  • what your criteria are that make it clear to you that a change is the better alternative.
  • which alternative subjects at the University of Konstanz or at other universities are suitable for you.
  • whether you still want to study, or a vocational training is a sensible next step.
  • whether and how you can react to your needs with a different type of Master after the Bachelor's degree.
  • which steps are necessary now, where to find the information you need and other places to help you, etc.
