Social and Financing Counselling at our Branch Offices

The Social Counseling Service and the Student Financing Counseling Service of the Studierendenwerk Freiburg are, of course, also available to provide advice and assistance to students at universities in the region.

All students with social, financial or personal problems can contact the social counseling service. In particular, it is responsible for students with children, students with disabilities or chronic illnesses, and international students. Advice is offered, for example, on social benefits, all topics relating to jobs or insurance issues.

The main focus of the Student Financial Counseling Service is to provide information about student loans, scholarships and other financial support options.
