Promoting study orientation

Career and study guidance begins at school. As a teacher, we support you in integrating the topic into your lessons and guiding your pupils through the decision-making process. We provide information and advice on various topics, including the following:

  • What fields of study and degree programmes are there?
  • What does "studying" mean?
  • How do you find the right degree programme?
  • Where can I find the relevant information?

In order to support you in implementing the standard element 9.2 "Study orientation" as part of the state initiative "Kein Abschluss ohne Anschluss"(KAoA), we are happy to come to your school or organise offers for your pupils on campus. Alternatively, we also offer a digital programme including digital presentations.

Offers on campus

Offers for individual pupils

Paderborn University not only offers you the opportunity to take part in study orientation programmes as a class or in groups, but we also offer individual pupils the chance to get to know Paderborn University and our diverse range of degree programmes in a variety of ways.

Orientation offers

We also offer extensive opportunities for individual students to get to know Paderborn University and the various degree programmes. Find out more about our programmes here, which you are welcome to pass on to your pupils.

Performance-motivated pupils

If you teach pupils who are motivated to achieve and whose talents should be developed beyond the subject matter, we have appropriate programmes for them. In particular, pupils who come from non-academic homes or from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds receive individualised support.
