Information and Counseling Services for Prospective Students

The TUHH stages several information events each year for prospective students. Each event has a different main focus and alignment.

Prospective student round-up (face-to-face / digital monthly alternating)

Once a month, the Central Student Advisory Service (Zentrale Studienberatung) of the TUHH organises an information round for prospective students of the BACHELOR's degree programs, where you can ask questions on general topics related to taking up studies at the TUHH.
