Congratulations! The WiSo student council has won an idea prize for its exam training in the "Call for Innovative First Semester Offers #cultureofcare". With this prize, the representatives for students with disabilities or chronic illnesses at the University of Cologne award innovative concepts for first semester offers at the University of Cologne. In particular, ideas should be honoured that promote a culture of care within the framework of the efforts of an inclusive university." The patron is Prof. Beatrix Busse, Vice-Rector for Studies and Teaching at the University of Cologne.

At the exam training sessions, students can take one last longer study shift in small groups shortly before their exams. They can talk through assignments with experienced, voluntary tutors, clarify questions and also solve old exams together. The exam training sessions usually last four hours. The offer is deliberately kept low-threshold, and registration is not usually required (unless the training takes place online).

We are pleased to receive this award from the WiSo family and would like to thank all those involved for their commitment.
