General study advice and information

Drop in advisory service (no prior appointment necessary)

Due to the current health crisis caused by the Covid-​19 pandemic we currently are mainly available by phone. You can reach us Mondays - Fridays between 10.00 - 13.00 as well as Mondays - Thursdays 15.00 - 16.00 by using the phone numbers: +49 (0) 521 106-​3017 and + 49 (0) 521 106-​3019.

Additionally you can contact us Thursdays between 15.00 - 16.00 via Zoom. Find further information on access data, data protection and technical requirements on this website.

Also you can always contact by sending us an e-mail to zsb@uni-​bielefeld.de.

A quick note when calling us: While we are currently mainly working from Home Office it appears that you hear a dial tone even while we're occupied by another phone call (instead of hearing a busy tone). In this case, please try the other number or try again a little later.

You may contact the ZSB with any questions you may have concerning your studies. Whether it is a matter of

  •  Deciding what to study,
  •  study opportunities at the University and elsewhere, to
  •  initial questions on how to organise and finance studies
  •  or change of subject and study orientation if you have been with us for a longer period of time

We are open to your enquiries.

It is easy to contact us. You do not need an appointment. Just come by during our open office hours for a personal chat.

Our advice is free and confidential. If you wish, you can remain anonymous.

We will answer e-mail inquiries as quickly and in as much detail as possible. However, you are also welcome to call us to clarify initial questions. This sometimes helps save unnecessary trips and is sometimes more effective than e-mail contact because of any follow-up questions that may be necessary.

For each phase of study – before you study, application, enrolment, study start, etc. – you will find some general information on our ZSB homepage.

By the way, our drop-in advice service applies equally to those seeking general advice / information on studies as well as psychosocial counselling.
