Focus Advisors


The focus advisors offer counseling and support to students in their respective study focus. They assist students in general study planning, in preparing a mobility window in the third third semester, as well as in developing a thesis idea and finding the right supervisor.

Furthermore, they responsible for assessing the fit of courses attended at other institutes (imports) or abroad to a student's chosen study focus and their research plans within the programme. Students are therefore required to have them check such course choices ahead of time (e.g. for a study exchange) to ensure that they can be counted towards the MA TS.

Prior registration for the office hours is mandatory. Make sure to send an email from your student account stating your full name and your concern/question in advance.
