Virtual action day on study programs at eleven universities in Hesse

Under the motto "Next stop, university! Find out more about this new stage of your life", the student advisory services at Hessen's universities are organizing the "Action Day for Prospective Students - Well Advised - Studying in Hessen" for the second time on 20 March. The online day of action starts at 14:30 with a welcome. From 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., 24 half-hour presentations will provide information on study options and tips for choosing a course of study.

The day of action offers an overview of the future-oriented and exciting courses on offer at universities in Hessen. Prospective students can gain insights into different subject areas and information on how to apply or ask students about their personal experiences. Prospective students with special challenges are also addressed, for example because they have chronic illnesses or are the first in their family to study.

The lecture program is presented on the landing page www.studiereninhessen.de. Even after the campaign day, up-to-date information on study orientation and the range of courses on offer in Hesse will be made available there. A search mask on the page makes it easier to search for all degree courses in Hessen and leads directly to more detailed information at the respective university.

During the campaign day, the student advisory services will give 24 presentations on topics such as "Shaping the living environment - studying in the fields of environment, agriculture and nutrition", "Promoting development - studying in the fields of education and social work" or "Creative with formulas, numbers and rules - studying in the fields of math, computer science and  natural sciences" to show which universities in Hessen offer suitable degree courses. They will discuss the differences between the more research-oriented and more application-oriented courses on offer.

Other cross-university lecture topics include "Studying with a disability or chronic illness", "Dual studies in Hessen" and "University access for vocationally qualified students". Parents and teachers will also receive information in two offers on how they can support pupils in their study and career orientation. In addition, students will report on how they coped with the start of their studies and talk about the difference between school and university.

Background:

Young prospective students in particular often feel insecure about their professional future and the wide range of study options. The central student advisory services of the universities offer comprehensive and always up-to-date advice on study and career orientation. The mission of the student advisory service, which has long been enshrined in law in Hesse, is to support future students in their choice of university and subject, to provide information about the requirements and content of the degree course, to advise in the event of conflicting decisions and to improve the accuracy of the choice of degree course for prospective students. This requires open-ended, confidential advice and basic knowledge of the various educational options and courses on offer. The student advisors have up-to-date knowledge of educational career planning and are highly sensitive to unequal, conflicting requirements and diversity thanks to regular further training.
