Consultation hoursIssues that concern you and only you can be discussed during consultation hours. Examples include letters of recommendation you need, stays abroad, selection of courses, topics, etc. In all these cases please send me an email with your question so that I am better prepared when you visit me. Usually, I will answer your emails during term-time within one business day and we will find a date for an appointment within a week.
If you need a letter of recommendation for a stay abroad, for a scholarship, etc., it helps if you send me your documents, study plans, and your grades before we meet.
If you think that you have difficulties related to your studies, please contact us soon enough. It is always easier to find a solution if you come in time. Keep in mind that the Studienberatung offers counselling and practical support.
Issues that are relevant for a larger group of students can be discussed during the lecture, during the exercises or (for larger lectures) on the discussion board. It is not the purpose of consultation hours to give private lessons or to provide secret information to only some students. If you have questions regarding the content of the course, then most likely many other students will have the same question. The other students will be glad if you raise your hand and ask a question. Don't be afraid to ask questions during class. Alternatively, you can also send us an email with your question and we will give the answer next time in the class.
