Consulting Evaluation 2017/2018

The Center for Methods also carried out a second evaluation of its consulation services in the winter semester of 2017/2018. Students and staff who have been using support since 2011, were asked about their experiences and were able to express their wishes for the future. The results of the evaluation form an important building block for the organization and development of the future advisory service. The evaluation is to be carried out again next year.
