Student Advising Center

The Student Advising Center (ZSB) supports current and prospective HTWG Konstanz students with all aspects of their studies: choosing a major, changing your major, and challenges in studying, preparing for exams or presenting. We're here to help you.

Learning Consultations

Studying at a university requires a high level of intellectual and academic skills, including the ability to utilize special learning strategies. Many students are not well prepared for the transition from school to university coursework. Some of the challenges that students have to deal with include:

  • Difficulties in preparing for exams
  • Procrastination / regularly postponing important tasks
  • Difficulties studying and concentrating
  • Test and presentation anxiety
  • Difficulties working or studying in groups
  • etc.

 

Without these skills, students can fall behind in their studies or may even have to drop out of the university. But our team at the Student Advising Center can help. We can support and guide you in your learning process and give you the opportunity to reflect on learning challenges, discover personal resources, and solve these learning blocks in a series of individualized consultations. Our learning support is not about the subject matter in your courses but about how you can study more effectively and purposefully to perform better in these classes.

In these learning consultations, you decide what your goals are and we help you achieve them.

Learning Emails

The art of studying needs to be learned! In our Learning Emails training, we provide you with some new ideas and let you try it out - because studying means being able to organize learning tasks independently and then review content on your own. Give it a try! Test out new learning strategies and structure your preparation and follow-up tasks actively.
It might take a bit longer at the beginning, but with the necessary skills, you will become more efficient in studying and more successful in your classes. The Learning Emails are part of our Moodle course "Lernen lernen" (Learning to Study). You will receive the learning emails once you have registered for the Moodle course.
