At Graduate School there is a wide range of counselling and coaching services.


We offer scheduled and open counselling sessions to students and prospective students who would like professional support before or during their Masters studies.

Here, you can visit the website of the Student Counselling Service for our Masters programmes.

Students from teacher education can find the offer tailored to them at the Student Counselling Service of Leuphana College.

Doctorate & Postdoc

The counselling helps you to reflect on and deal with your expectations, goals and perspectives as well as to strategically plan your next steps in the academic qualification phase as a doctoral student or postdoc.

If you have already started your academic qualification phase but are now considering a career outside of academia, you can reflect on your professional profile in the context of your personal interests, values and competences in the coaching of the Graduate School.

You can find the services on the website Counselling and Coaching for Doctoral Students and Postdocs.

Information Days

Graduate School offers several information days every year to provide information about the School and its study programmes. In addition to the presentation of the study model, the admission requirements and the application procedure, we offer you presentations of our study programmes, which are held by lecturers - mostly the programme coordinators or spokespersons of the research groups. You will also have the opportunity to talk to current Masters students and doctoral candidates at the Graduate School.

You can find the next dates and contents of past Information Days on the page Information Day Masters & PhD.
