Psychological counseling at the Studentenwerk Niederbayern-Oberpfalz

Studying often brings many changes - new city, new friends, new apartment, a new role as a student and a new way of learning. All of these are basically manageable challenges - but as an international student you can soon feel overwhelmed. The team of psychological counseling at the Studentenwerk has an open ear for your concerns and supports you professionally and confidentially.

Social counseling (Studentenwerk Niederbayern-Oberpfalz)

The social counselors support students and prospective students with financial, economic and/or personal problems or questions. They help to develop strategies for financing your studies, taking into account various life situations and different stages of your studies, e.g. if you want to start a family during your studies or if your health is impaired.
