Social Counselling

At each of the locations of Braunschweig, Clausthal-Zellerfeld, Hildesheim and Lüneburg, there is a social counselling. Its comprehensive counselling and support offer is free for students and people interested in studying as well as for their relatives and graduates of all 10 locations.

In general, our counselling takes place in form of a personal interview. You will receive infomation via phone or e-mail as well. Of course, all questions will be treated as confidential. If required, we will forward you to another competent contact person of our counselling network:

…and many more.

Through the social counsellor, international students who find themselves in financial difficulties can apply for financial support at the Notfonds für ausländische Studierende e. V. quickly and unbureaucratically (e.g. help for rent, graduation, in-between homeward journeys or livelihood).
