Abi, then what? Workshop for students of the Abendgymnasium
This workshop offers the opportunity to deal specifically with the phase of life after the Abitur and prepares students for their study and career choices. Particular attention is paid to personal goals, interests and abilities and the weighting of the various areas of life.
Orientation test: was-studiere-ich.de
With this self-test you can find out which courses of study might suit your interests and abilities. Participation in a study orientation test is a prerequisite for admission to all undergraduate courses at the University of Heidelberg. However, the test results do not have any effect on the chance of obtaining a place, but only serve your own orientation.
Offers for schools
The Central Student Advisory Service offers school classes and teachers the opportunity to visit the University of Heidelberg and find out all they need to know about studying. Various lecture modules for study orientation can be combined as required.
Support Initiative for German Schools Abroad and Partner Schools (BIDS)
