Workshop: "Career Entry or Master’s Program? The Decision at Graduation"

Bachelor’s degree and then? – This is a question many students ask.

Should I start applying for jobs straight off, or would it be better for me to acquire further qualifications in a suitable master’s program? But how can I find a master’s program that fits my needs and interests, and what professions does my degree qualify me for?

This two-day workshop gives all students approaching graduation who haven’t yet decided what to do after completing their bachelor’s degree the opportunity to identify their own abilities and interests, research interesting options, familiarize themselves with decision-making methods, and apply them.
Please contact Michael Wenzel.

Advising by Appointment

Who should take advantage of it?
We recommend arranging an appointment for less urgent matters that feel particularly “serious” or seem particularly difficult and complex. It is also wise to arrange an appointment if you will be traveling a long distance to obtain information about studying at the University of Freiburg.

Please note: The obligatory subject advisory for a change to a new subject after the 3rd semester can only be obtained from the study programme coordinator of the subject you want to change to.

Advising appointments are usually scheduled to last one hour. As a rule, appointments are arranged a maximum of three weeks in advance.

Depending on the topic of the advising session (e.g., orientation advising), our advisors might contact you beforehand to let you know how you can prepare for the session.

All advising sessions are confidential.
