Your Position:

Social Counseling Service

You are studying and you know what credit points, tutorials and SHK are. Nevertheless, it is possible that not everything will go smoothly and that you will need independent and objective advice on social or financial problems during your student life.

The counseling center of the Student Services (Studentenwerk) is your first place to go for this. It is open to all students of the universities of Dresden and Zittau/Görlitz.
