Anyone interested in studying at the Institue and requiring support or advise, should refer to the university’s advisory service. Especially important for potential applicants is the central student service (program specific advise is offered by Philipp Schulte and Eva Holling) which advises on all issues regarding degree opportunities, and the application and admission procedure. For further information concerning costs and financing options (BAFöG, tuition fees, scholarships) you can visit the social councelling service located next to the student union. For further inforamtion on the various institutional and social issues, the webpage's directory can be of help. Currently, universities in Hessen have no tuition fees, however, a so-called „semester fee“ of around 260 euro, however, is to be paid.
Anyone interested in finding out more about the institute, can visit during one of 2 annual open days, the first of which, the Hochschulinformationstage (HIT), is aimed at senior high school students and takes place during January and the second, the Masterinformationstag (Master and Career), is aimed at Bachelor students.
Alternatively, to gain a more unique insight into the workings of the institute and to meet current students, the annual student-organized theatre festivals, the Theatermaschine and the Diskurs festival, are open to all.
