Central Study Advisory and Counseling Service

Unbiased. Confidential. Individual.

The Central Study Advisory and Counseling Service (Zentrale Studienberatung, ZSB) is the University’s first contact point for all questions around studying. We provide information and guidance to (prospective) students in all matters related to choosing a degree program, getting started at university and managing their studies. As a coordinating unit within the advisory network of the University of Bonn, we closely cooperate with the central advisory and service points, the faculties and the student representatives. We are also happy to act as a “signpost” and refer you to the right contact to help with your inquiry.

Whether it is before or during your studies: your ZSB team is always here to help!
