The University’s Central Student Advice and Counselling Centre offers advice on issues and queries that cut across disciplinary boundaries, e.g. concerning the selection of subjects, learning difficulties, psychological counselling, or social issues (such as finances, housing, studying with children, studying with disabilities etc.)
The University’s Central Student Advice and Counselling Centre (Zentrale Studienberatung, ZSB) also offers advice for students with disabilities. More information can be found on their website.
If you have a complaint about any aspect of your studies at the English Department, it should be raised with the respective teacher or with the Department's Director of Academic Affairs, Ms Silja Fehn, at the earliest opportunity.
Should you feel that it is not possible to resolve the complaint this way, you can also approach the University's central Complaints Office ("Brennpunkt Lehre"). Their website provides you with a list of appropriate faculty members that the complaint could be brought to.
If, however, neither the English Department nor the faculty were able to help you, the Complaints Office also offers the option to fill in a complaint form online; they will then try to find different ways of resolving the issue.
