Consulting Evaluation 2018

In 2018, the Center for Methods carried out an evaluation of its own advisory services. 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.

Consultation Context

The majority of students take advantage of the advisory services for the preparation of final theses for bachelor, master or doctoral studies.

Waiting period

The majority of the consultations take place within two weeks of the first request.


As a rule, the respondents take one or two consultation appointments.

Consultation time

The majority of respondents took advantage of the advisory services for 30 minutes to 2 hours.


The students would particularly like the Center for Methods to expand the offerings for the software SPSS, R, EvaSys, MAXQDA and STATA.
