Our coaching is neutral, confidential and open-minded.

For all students of both universities Rhine-Waal and Niederrhein.

What does coaching offer you?

Coaching is a solution-focused form of counselling that focuses on your entire (decision-making) process and all the perspectives that you would like. There are many reasons for students to doubt their studies and everyone experiences them differently. There is therefore no “one size fits all” plan of action for students in this position. During the coaching sessions we work together to find the right path for you. The central focus is on self-reflection and setting goals: Where am I right now? Where do I want to go? What do I have to do to achieve this goal? Our range of services is rounded off with tips on research strategies and referral to the relevant contacts in the network.

Coaching is available to all students of both universities and is therefore offered in both German and English. International students must bear in mind that counselling of external network partners is generally given in German and that the Immigration Office should be involved, depending on their individual situation.

In which framework does coaching take place?

Coaching at your own campus
Coaching is offered at all campuses of the Rhine-Waal and Niederrhein Universities. After you have made an appointment, the sessions are held in a confidential atmosphere on the campus of your choice. At the first meeting you will discuss your current situation and one or more follow-up appointments can be arranged depending on your individual needs. Several appointments can be useful, as phases of research and (self-)reflection often alternate. The appointments last from 45 to 90 minutes, depending on your needs.

Online coaching
Are you currently living or staying far away from the campus? Do your children have to be cared for at home and is it difficult to make an appointment at the university right now? No problem. We also offer you online coaching appointments online. These sessions are held in the virtual consultation chat room. We will send you the link befor the appointment. All you need is a stable internet connection and a computer with a microphone and camera.
