Advice available for students
Studying also means being able to constantly motivate yourself afresh and organize yourself. So, what do you do if that doesn’t work out?
There are a number of people you can contact about any concerns within the university. These contact persons offer confidential advice in the event of problems, if studies are proving challenging or you encounter personal difficulties, exam anxieties, doubts, personal crises, conflicts, financial emergencies, disruptions to your study work, isolation or contact difficulties, identity crises or any other difficult situations.
The Delegate for equality is at the disposal of all students regarding issues of gender discrimination, harassment or sexual violence, and also regarding matters relating to a family-friendly art university, studying art with a child, and reconciling study and family.
For all other concerns regarding discrimination, unfair treatment or other conflict situations the persons of trust are there to help you.
Representatives for the interests of students with disabilities
The representatives for the interests of students with disabilities are the contact point for prospective students, applicants and students with long-term or permanent health impairments. Frank Richters and Christoph König advise and support you in all impairment-related matters concerning study orientation, application and study.
