Academic Advisory Service
The Academic Advisory Service of THWS also offers advice for prospective students and active students with disabilities or chronic illnesses. An appointment is absolutely necessary. Additionally, you can arrange an individual appointment by e-mail. We happily invite all students to contact us.

Programme advice

Advice related to your specific degree programme is offered by your faculty’s programme advisors.

Active involvement of students promotes participation and contributes to everyday academic life at THWS. We therefore welcome every idea and will include them in our considerations and planning! Disadvantages or discriminations in everyday life at our University can be reported easily and, as an option, anonymously via the contact form below.
