Information and Counselling on Study Orientation

The University is working in limited operation

The University of Rostock is working in limited operation order to border the spread of the coronavirus. As a result, there are no on-site office hours at the Student Service Center. If possible, the employees work in the home office, so that contact with the specialized contact persons is only possible by e-mail. The Info-Service can also still be reached by telephone. Please understand that in this situation not all requests can be dealt with completely and promptly.

Further information for students can be found on the student portal "Studierendenportal" at Current information on dealing with the coronavirus.


Information and Walk-in Counselling

In our open office hours, prospective and current students receive information regarding course orientation, change of study programmes and receive answers to questions concerning individual progress of study. We also forward you to other helpful contacts within and outside the university.

As there is no pre-registration or appointment needed, a short amount of waiting time may be possible.

Even in the ongoing limited operation, you do not need an appointment. We can be reached by telephone or video call. You may have to try several times. For voice or video call, use the link provided. We use the conference portal of the German Research Network (DFN), which complies with the German data protection guidelines. You do not need to install any software on your device. You may have to wait a little and will be activated individually for the virtual room. In case of technical difficulties, please use the telephone number provided.

Individual advice on study orientation

While having an appointment with one of our study counsellors we will discuss and look at interests, talents and competences you bring along. We will look on your individual characteristic traits that may lead to one decision or the other concerning your choice of study field. We will enable you to start an individual research. The aim is to encourage you  to make profound and well-considered decisions regarding your  choice of study. 


Our study counsellors are Ms. Sonja Zimmermann and Mr. Christian Birringer. All appointments will be coordinated by the Info-Service of the Student Service Center. During the limited orientation the councelling appointments will take place via telephone or video call.
