Student Counselling

We're helping you to navigate!

Are you currently in a situation as a WU student that you feel like you can’t handle on your own? Do you feel like confidential counselling could help? Then you’ve come to the right place: the WU Student Counselling Program.

The Student Counselling Program is there to help students strengthen the skills they need to successfully complete their degree programs and learn to deal with stress factors and other challenges presented by student life.

The Student Counselling team can provide support in a variety of situations, such as:

  • Psycho-social problems affecting students’ quality of life and performance potential

  • Study-related problems, conflicts, and crises (e.g. writer’s block, concentration issues, reintegration into student life after a longer leave period, pre-exam anxiety)

  • Difficult social situations, for example balancing studies with a job or a family

  • Insecurity and anxiety, also with regard to life after university


How do we work despite Corona?

Since WU Campus is closed (current information can be found on this website), our workshops and moderated peer groups on topics such as motivation, dealing with pressure and stress or exam nerves will not take place in the summer semester 2020.

In the meantime we have developed the following NEW offers, which are also available NOW:
  • Online Round Table: Each appointment has a thematic focus, which we are happy to accompany professionally, but the focus is on exchange among the students! 

  • On Counselling@home a constantly growing collection of tools and background information is available online.


Please do not hesitate to contact us for an individual consultation/coaching by phone /Skype or e-mail - please make appointments by e-mail only.

During these sessions, participants explore various alternatives for dealing with problem situations to help find the best possible solution. Close cooperation with other advisory services like the Student Ombuds Office or the WU ZBP Career Center allows us to provide students with optimal support.

Which topics are of your concern?

We are looking forward to learn more about your issues to tailor our services further to your needs. Feel invited to participate in our questionnaire.
