Courses and Seminars offered by Student Services Freiburg

It is possible to study and have fun too, you just have to know how. The seminars offered by the student services show you how to study successfully. Courses on offer include time management, presentation techniques and tips and tricks for writing papers, as well as techniques for coping with exam stress.

These seminars are open to Furtwangen University students but (usually) take place in Freiburg. Seminars will also usually be held in German, so please check beforehand if they are suitable to your needs.
