English Department | Administration and Advising Office

platform 9 34 ©braeuerThe Administration and Advising Office is the point of contact between the teaching and instructors in the Department and the university administration. We are your central point of contact for anything concerning your English studies. We have answers to your questions about studying in the department, and can advise you on potential uncertainty concerning university structures as well as your course of studies – particularly in the event of unavoidable deviations e.g. due to family, illness, time abroad, professional concerns, etc. – and we will support you as best as we can in matters concerning the university bureaucracy.

In principle, we are always available as your first point of contact and can help you find the right direction. Our trusted motto:

»Don't suffer in silence.«
