The Central Student Advising Service has the task of advising prospective students, enrolled students, and others interested in the University about the degree program contents, tasks, and requirements.

The Central Student Advising Service gives information, advises, and assists, e.g. with:

  • Questions about admission and possibilities for studying (application)
  • Orientation at the University, conditions and requirements for studying
  • Problems with choosing a subject area
  • Problems during the course of studies
  • Questions about continuing studies
  • Representation of student interests in the University’s committees

We offer the following advising formats:

  • Advising at individual appointments

    If you want to get advice specific to your situation, please send us a request for an appointment at studienberatung(at)hs-anhalt.de.

    Data protection is very important to us:
    Here’s the most important information right at the start: What happens when you send a question to the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences advisors through WhatsApp? It’s simple - by doing so, you allow us to give you information about your question one time.

    If you contact us with WhatsApp, that is done by the messenger service’s end-to-end encryption. To use the service, it is absolutely necessary for us to save your telephone number temporarily. If you request, we will delete your number immediately after the chat. If you share personal data with us during the chat, this data will also be deleted. Otherwise, we will delete your number and any personal data included in the chat at the end of the service.
    We do not know how WhatsApp collects, processes or uses your data. If you want to send us confidential information or discuss sensitive topics, for security reasons we ask that you use a different communication channel (e.g. email) or make an appointment in person.

  • Advising on Skype

    You’re on the other side of Germany or are currently abroad? No problem - our advising format is also for prospective students or students who are far away.


    A consultation via Skype is currently not possible.
