    "The WiSSPo offers excellent services. During a CV-Check, professionals provide help with resume design. And at the reception you can easily pick up a certified Transcript of Records or receive help with the credit portals."

  • Manuel, Economics

    "The WiSo Student Service Point always provides an advisor for my student problems right around the corner. This has made it easier for me to navigate my way through my studies."

  • Marcel, Bachelor Economics

    "Having a central information centre is a great advantage, because all questions that arise during one’s studies can be answered quickly."

First point of contact for WiSo students and prospective students

The WiSo Student Service Point (WiSSPo) is your first, central point of contact for questions about studying at the WiSo faculty and bundles WiSo services and advice in one place. This also includes questions about examination matters that were previously answered at the Examinations Office reception and are now also answered at the WiSo Student Service Point. Are you a WiSo student or interested in studying at the WiSo faculty? If so, you will find information and advice on all aspects of studying at the WiSo faculty.

Do you need information immediately? We have compiled the answers to common questions in the FAQs.

Please check this WiSo website regularly for current information and developments. Detailled regulations concerning the examinations can be found here on the website of the WiSo Examination Office.

How do I reach the WiSo Examination Office? We can already clarify many questions - including specific examination matters - with you at the WiSSPo. Therefore, you should first contact us by s-mail or telephone. If it is not possible to clarify your concern, we will take over communication with the Examinations Office for you. We are in close contact with our colleagues and will then send you a concrete response to your s-mail address. For some concerns, however, a written application may be necessary. We will forward this as a PDF attachment and you will receive a telephone or written response directly from the colleagues in the Examinations Office. The Examinations Office itself can only be contacted by post or fax.
