Do you have any questions about studying linguistics? On this page we have compiled some advice for you.

During your studies there can always be situations in which you need our advice, especially with technical questions. You can contact any institute member about this. Don't hesitate too long in making the decision to seek advice. You can contact us if you are in doubt as to whether you want to continue studying linguistics, if you have questions about the allocation of modules or further study planning, if you need help in finding a topic for your bachelor's or master's thesis, if you need advice for the start of the master’s degree etc. For certain situations we have a division of tasks in the institute.
