Academic orientation

The two-day short workshop on “Academic Orientation” is about exploring a range of issues related to choosing a degree program that’s right for you. Working in small groups, high school students and study advisors from the University of Bonn discuss possible orientation pathways that may contribute to making structured academic decisions. Aside from exchanging helpful information, the workshop also includes conversations that encourage participants to reflect on their own abilities, interests and aspirations.

Target group: High school students in the final years

What to expect: After a brief round of introductions, we will work on various tasks that encourage reflection on your own abilities and interests, alternating between individual activities and group work. Furthermore, the academic offerings of the University of Bonn can serve as an example of how to research information and how to identify the factors that should be considered when looking at an academic discipline.

Workshops for students

Being a university student can be challenging. We are here to help you master this period in your life successfully by offering regular workshops that cover topics such as learning strategies, exam preparation, time management, increasing self-esteem, reorientation during your studies as well as transitioning into a master’s degree program or work environment. 

Learning strategies and more

First-year students in particular often find that learning at school and learning at university are two very different matters. As an upper-level high school student, you were told what to learn and possibly experienced guided learning settings. Learning at university, by contrast, requires a high degree of independence and self-organization. The workshop introduces participants to different learning methods and helps them develop individual strategies for different situations of learning.

Target group: First-year students (primarily in their first program-related semester) 

What to expect: In active group work, you will become familiar with various learning techniques such as mind mapping, the loci method, reading techniques, etc. The second date in particular will be devoted to sharing experiences with regard to experimenting with and applying what you’ve learned in your daily study routines.

Time management

Sounds familiar? The first exams are coming up, studying is the only thing on your mind, your week barely leaves time for fun things – it’s about time you sign up for our “Time Management” workshop. Working in a small group, participants are introduced to strategies and techniques that may help them set the right goals and priorities, structure tasks and keep a healthy study-life balance.

Target group: First-year students (program-related semesters 1-3)

What to expect:Active group work and learning techniques The second date in particular will be devoted to sharing experiences with regard to experimenting with and applying what you’ve learned in your daily study routines. 


I am worth it! Improving your self-esteem

Are you familiar with self-doubts and insecurities? Are you often self-critical? Are your high expectations of yourself setting you up for unhappiness? When comparing yourself to others, do you often think of yourself as inferior?

Doubts about your studies – how to find out what matches your goals

Over the course of their studies, most students at some point have doubts over whether they have chosen the right field of study. To find out about possible alternatives – or whether your current study program is still the right one for you – it is crucial to be aware of your own abilities, interests and values. In this workshop, participants explore their own competences and interests. Another goal is to engage with one’s own ideas about possible future careers. 

Target group: Students who have doubts about their studies.

What to expect:Aside from some brief input from the workshop leaders, participants work actively in small groups and in plenary sessions.
