Procedure of the counseling "Studying in Germany"

First Session

Get in Touch

In the first session, we talk about your study wishes in Germany. We clarify your personal interests and goals as well as family and financial requirements for your future and choice of university. I will give you access to the potential analysis. This is the basis for session two.

Analysis of potential

Get to know your talents

You work on the English- or German-language psychological potential analysis at home or in the GOOD PLAN STUDIO. This provides us with objective data on your professional interests, personality and your learning and working behaviour. The results support the personal interviews in the second session.

Discussion of Results

In the second session, we discuss the test results and focus on your strengths, previous experiences and school projects. We identify courses of study, training and professions that suit you better than others.

We note down all the interview results on the strengths map. This gives you a clear picture of your professional portfolio.

Choice of Study Programs and Universities

In the meantime we will research suitable Bachelor degree programmes as well as university locations for your requirements profile. You can contact me at any time with questions.

Third Session

Final career recommendations

My grades are not that good. Can I still study in Germany?

You can study in Germany like any other student. When choosing a course of study, pay attention to the Numerus Clausus of the subject. ADMISSIBLE degree programmes are open to all A-levels. When choosing a course of study, make sure that it matches your professional interests and your talents.
