The Student Advisory Service is here to help
Studying at the TU Darmstadt marks the beginning of a new phase in life and is accompanied by a wealth of new information, insights, challenges and decisions to be made. During this time, questions regarding the individual design of the curriculum, legal parameters or the possibility of a specialisation often arise. If there are problems with your studies or difficulties with examinations, the study counselling will be happy to assist you. Of course prospective students are also welcome to contact us with their questions.
