If you are in the midst of a course of study but have serious doubts about whether to continue with it, you are faced with the decision whether to try to complete it, transfer to another program, or terminate your studies. Such a decision raises many questions. The event provides a first overview of all possible alternatives and educational options for those who want to – or must – terminate their studies, including transferring to another educational institution or taking up vocational training.
Students attending the event have the chance to talk to and get individualized advice from all the relevant contact persons.
This event is jointly offered by the city of Aachen, RWTH Aachen, FH Aachen, Forschungszentrum Jülich and the Employment Agency Aachen. The event is targeted at those students who consider terminating their studies at any one of the Aachen universities.
