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.

Self-study course "Successful learning!"

We give you input and then it's your turn: Learning during studies means independent organisation and independent learning control. Let yourself try out new learning strategies and approach your active preparation and follow-up in a structured way. 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.

We support you during your studies with learning emails and the Moodle course "Erfolgreich lernen!" (Successful learning).

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

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 Learning Emails are part of our Moodle course "Erfolgreich lernen" (Successful Learning). The emails support you with additional assignments and exercises and help you learn more successfully and efficiently. After completing the individual modules for successful learning, you can face the upcoming examsmore optimistic and with more confidence. You will receive the learning emails once you have registered for the Moodle course.

Student study room in Moodle

Working with two dedicated students we have created a student study room in Moodle. This room is intended to be a platform for exchange and collaborative learning between students, digitally across faculties and semesters. Our goal is for the study room to be a format made by students for students.
