Feedback from students who sought our advice
Denise M.
Thank you for the informative consultation. I was very satisfied with the counselling interview, my questions were answered completely, they were also forwarded to the persons responsible (e.g. regarding post-exam review, student ID, etc.) and I was recommended a good (organisational) strategy for this semester, which I will be taking into account.
