Consultation Service

Do you have specific questions about the application of a method or are you looking for advice on a qualification thesis? The Center of Methods complements and bundles the broad and diverse expertise of scientific methods at Leuphana and advises students and researchers on specific methodological problems.

For first introductions to the use of software or individual methods, please note the additional offers and trainings in the course catalog of myStudy or use the Sustainability Methods Wiki.

For individual questions that need to be answered quickly and do not require extensive consultation, please use our Discord server.

In order to be able to guarantee an efficient personal consultation, we would like to ask you to prepare yourself as best as possible in advance. Therefore, please be sure to send us your research outline when requesting a consultation. To make an appointment, please contact

Please note that we can only offer personal consultations for students of Leuphana University regarding their theses. In addition, the offer applies to doctoral students who are enrolled at Leuphana University of Lüneburg, employees and scientists as well as junior scientists of Leuphana University.
