Study centres abroad

The FernUniversität in Hagen is the only German university with numerous branches whose function is to disseminate its study programmes as well as counsel and support its students at home and abroad. FernUnversität’s around 60 study centres are an important component of the teaching and studying system. The study centres afford the students and those interested in distance studies an opportunity to get information and counselling on all issues connected with such studies. Here they can meet their fellow students, borrow books, and learn how to use and apply technical media.

At the study centres tutorials take place which are the responsibility of FernUniversität’s Faculties and Chairs. These tutorials deal with course-related problems, as well as assignments and preparatory work for the examinations. Furthermore, the study centres provide a place for face-to-face sessions of individual chairs and also for lectures given by professors of the FernUniversität.

The General Student Advisory Service primarily offers individual help with issues such as choosing an appropriate subject, motivating students in their studies, organising one’s work, as well as finding a balance between family/job and university studies.

Student advisers provide introductory information for beginners. Seminars and workshops are offered, e.g. to skill up students to work scientifically. General events, such as seminars on key qualifications are offered for students from all faculties, partly in cooperation with regional institutions.
