Study Counseling Service Osnabrück

Take your future into your own hands!
We are happy to advise you on all aspects concerning your choice of academic subjects, your current studies, or a possible reorientation.

You may have so many interests that you find it difficult to select an academic discipline which covers most of them. In that case we will help you to evaluate your options in order to find academic subjects which match your interests and abilities.
During our service hours we offer advice by telephone, email, web conference or in personal meetings. Please let us know, if you prefer an individual meeting in our office, by phone or online. We can also offer a one-to one walk in our campus area. Our consultations are confidential, independent, and free of charge. Generally, our consultations are in German, however we can also talk in English if you cannot speak German. You can also bring or use a person who speaks English and your native language. You must then trust him/her to translate the spoken words correctly.

For a first contact please send us an email: info@zsb-os.de
