Meet the student counsellor

We offer prospective students counselling in all questions regarding the choice of study, admission requirements or the selection procedure.
Current students can contact us if they need help in managing and coping with their study challenges. The offer of the Student Counselling Service is always confidential and free of charge.

We only collect non-personal data for purely statistical purposes.

prospective students asked:

  •  Should I enter the Masters programme directly after my Bachelor's degree or only after a period of employment?
  •  Does this fit in with my Bachelor's degree and my ideas about my further education?
  •  What are the admission and selection procedures for the Masters at the Leuphana Graduate School?
  •  How are the prerequisites for the Masters programmes determined?
  •  Which content orientation can I expect in my desired masters degree?

Masters students asked

  • How can I optimally organize my Masters studies?
  • How do I deal constructively with learning and work problems?
  • What is the Doctoral Track and under what conditions can I apply for it?
  • How do I plan my prospects after completing the Masters degree?
  • Are doctoral studies a perspective?
  • What are the admission requirements for a doctorate?
