Offers for students

Students at the Hochschule Hannover (Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts) have the freedom to choose what suits them, what interests them and what helps them from the wide range of offers and possibilities at the Service Centre for Teaching Excellence. The versatile team offers exactly what is needed for an individual study programme in addition to the canon of subjects of the respective faculty. The aim is not to continue to fill the timetable, but to support the students in coping. In addition, the team would like to encourage HsH students to develop a personal study profile entirely according to their own interests through the freely selectable offers.

To ensure that no one loses touch right from the start,

the Service Centre for Teaching Excellence with its focus on digitalisation

makes sure that students can network with each other and with lecturers on e-learning platforms, organise working groups and download study materials. Electronic performance assessments also facilitate study life.

Given the variety of foreign languages on offer, it is certainly worth considering taking your school English or French to a higher level or learning a completely new language. At the

Service Centre for Teaching Excellence with a focus on foreign languages

, there are eleven languages to choose from and also the possibility to take part in special tandem programmes, language excursions and certified language tests. The

Writing Centre

is also located here, offering courses and writing practice for students who want to improve their texts and writing skills.

The employees in the

Service Centre for Teaching Excellence with focus on Study and Teaching

work together with the faculties to ensure continuously improving teaching. If things do not go so well in the course and goals are not achieved despite intensive learning - competent and professional support is available here. And for students for whom the curriculum alone is not enough, a broad spectrum of seminars is offered for the acquisition of

key qualifications

- such as scientific work or project management. Towards the end of the degree course, this also includes offers such as workshops on intercultural action skills and self-presentation for the transition into the profession.

Last but not least, the team at the

Service Centre for Teaching Excellence with its focus on alumni

ensures that graduates can stay in contact with each other and with the university. This includes the traditional graduation and alumni surveys as well as inter-faculty networks. In this way, former students remain connected to the university as alumni - for the benefit of all.
