Keeping fit and healthy at university

Studying at university can prove challenging, even without a pandemic. But don’t worry, you’re not alone! Not only is the university there to help you on your path to success – students also give each other support, providing a variety of services to help you keep fit and healthy at university.

Soul Support
Support by students for students: Soul Support

Psychological support in difficult life situations

Are you going through a difficult phase in life, are your exams stressing you out, or are you struggling with the measures put in place because of the coronavirus? We want to help you not only cope with such phases in your life, but even emerge stronger than before. Perhaps you’re feeling fine, but just want to get a few tips and ideas? Then come and join us!

In a variety of 90-minute workshops on topics related to the soul, we want to share thoughts and ideas with each other, and provide a bit of background knowledge. After the workshop, we offer further support, which is optional and by no means mandatory.

You’ll find out more during the workshop or by contacting us directly (see below). By offering this service, we want to help you to feel (even) better.

The Soul Support team from the School of Applied Psychology, led by Professor Dr. Nadia Sosnowsky-Waschek, welcomes students from all schools (currently online only)! Come and join us!

Coaching

Exam anxiety, learning difficulties or zero motivation? Individual coaching helps you to overcome these barriers. It will also enable you to see your goals more clearly, e.g. in the transition to your internship or the world of work. Coaching is also helpful if you want to optimise your performance. Prof. Dr. Susanne Edinger, Learning & Teaching Coach ECA, is available to you as a coach. 

Coaching is also generally available in English.

Tips and advice in the coronavirus crisis

In addition to coaching, you’ll also find lots of tips on learning and taking exams on our Wir-Online student platform. From April 2021, we are offering a special workshop on self-management in everyday online life as part of the General Studies programme, along the lines of: avoiding insanity at university!

This service is currently only available in German.
