Volunteering, Support, and Honors Programs


WU’s peer ment­or­ing pro­gram pairs older, more ex­per­i­enced stu­dents with small groups of new stu­dents for an entire semester. The pro­gram is also aimed at stu­dents who may find them­selves in a dif­fi­cult situ­ation (re­turn­ing to uni­versity after a leave of ab­sence, lack of mo­tiv­a­tion, etc.) and need some ex­tra sup­port.

WU Top League

With in­di­vidual sup­port for new stu­dents and highly rel­ev­ant events on top­ics re­lated to both aca­dem­ics and prac­tice, this pro­gram is aimed at stu­dents with top aca­demic qual­i­fic­a­tions and am­bi­tious goals: in short, the best.


The Vo­lun­teer­ing@WU pro­gram gives stu­dents in­ter­ested in giv­ing back to the com­munity the op­por­tun­ity to work with so­cially dis­ad­vant­aged chil­dren and teens. Show your so­cially con­scious side and be­ne­fit from the ad­di­tional train­ing provided to WU study or music bud­dies.


The sup­port pro­gram Be­Able is in­ten­ded for stu­dents with dis­ab­il­it­ies or chronic ill­ness. Tutors are avail­able to help par­ti­cipants mas­ter any is­sues and chal­lenges that may come up dur­ing stu­dent life.

Ment­or­ing Pro­gram for Aca­demic Writ­ing

In this pro­gram you will learn use­ful strategies for im­prov­ing your aca­demic writ­ing skills. These strategies in­clude: do­ing re­search, read­ing and un­der­stand­ing scien­ti­fic texts, writ­ing a first draft, and ed­it­ing your draft. You will par­ti­cip­ate in weekly meet­ings, dis­cuss writ­ing-re­lated top­ics and get feed­back on your texts from both your writ­ing ment­ors and your peers, i.e. other bach­elor stu­dents in the pro­gram.The pro­gram is held in Ger­man and is aimed at stu­dents writ­ing pa­pers in Ger­man.
