Doubts about your studies?

Doubts about the choice of your study program – What to do now?

If you want to keep studying in your program and you need help with certain difficulties, you can contact the TU4U Counseling Team for an individual appointment. The counselor will support you in finding possible solutions. You will be supported in the decision making process, for example by reflecting on your strengths and competences as well as possible choices that suit you best.
