Counselling for international students
With advice and assistance
Twice a week we offer open consultation hours for students from Africa, Asia, Latin America and South/Eastern Europe. If you would like to make an appointment, please send an e-mail to Friederike Lang (email@example.com) and we will suggest an appointment. The advantage of an appointment: No waiting time and possibly more detailed advice.
We listen and try to help when it becomes difficult to combine study and work. We know about the difficulties of students who have only one stay according to §16 and refugees.
We work in a network with other counselling centers and refer to colleagues if we ourselves have no advice or if others can help better. In emergency situations through no fault of our own, such as illness or a surprising loss of job, we can often bridge an emergency financially. We apply for money for students at the Protestant Church in Hesse and Nassau, the Evangelisches Werk für Entwicklung und Diakonie and the State of Hesse. There can be four weeks (!) between application and payment. That's why we have to come to the office in good time!
Social commitment in student associations, at the ASTA, at the StuBe Hessen, in the ESG or elsewhere is expected with multiple funding. Whether and if so, which religion they belong to, is insignificant for the allocation.
Every application for financial support is preceded by a consultation in which the progress of studies and financial needs are checked.
The following current documents must be available:
- Curriculum vitae
- Residence permit
- Matriculation certificate
- Performance mirror
- Personnel sheet
- Statements of account for the last three months
