Advisory services

The Central Student Advisory Service (Zentrale Sudienberatung) is the first point of contact for all questions related to choosing and pursuing a degree programme.

We support you in the period of transition between school and studies, as well as between studies and work and in the difficult phases of your studies.

Please find more information on the page of the Central Student Advisory Service


The course advisors help with questions regarding the programme content (structure and topics) and are responsible for questions that are predominantly subject-specific. They advise on the studyability of the subject, on the selection of elective modules or on the special features of the programme (internships, mobile modules abroad, etc.).

Please find more information on the page of the Course advisors


Our compass for advisory services provides an overview of the various advisory and information services available at Ulm University. It is intended to help you find the right contact person for your concern or question.

The compass for advisory services includes information for prospective and current students at Ulm University in general as well as additional information and services specifically for international prospective and current students. From choosing a programme to doubts about studying to questions about financing your studies and student housing - the compass for advisory services will help you find your way through the advisory jungle.

The beginning of your academic studies introduces you to a world of independence, new experiences, people and environments. This new life requires more energy and attention, even more so when dealing with a health impairment.

Ulm University wants to support and provide an equal footing to all students. This includes, in particular, students with mobility, visual or hearing impairments, chronic physical or mental illnesses, or specific learning disabilities (SLD). Our advisory service is available to current and prospective students of Ulm University.
