Consultation Service

The Center for Methods offers specific consultation for your research and thesis. We offer quantitative, qualitative and inter- and transdisciplinary methods as well as support with software.

For first steps in using software, please pay attention to our additional offers by visiting the Course Catalogue on myStudy and choosing "zusätzliche Angebote ohne CPs".

To ensure an efficient consultation, we ask you to prepare in the best possible way. Therefore, we have compiled Hints for Preparation. In addition, you can gather information about whom to contact for consultation in the table below.
