Personal Advising Services

Personal appointments with an academic advisor provided by Student Advisory Services give students, particularly for first-year students, an opportunity to inform themselves and ask specific questions about different study programs in general and topics regarding specific studies at the University of Innsbruck, such as content of specific programmes, topics related to the initial phase of a program, admission and selection procedures, and student life, etc. The sessions are free of charge and the advisors discuss questions in an open and unbiased way.


Following the recommendations to avoid the spread of the coronavirus, the Student Advisory Services’ advisors will provide support, (educational) counselling and academic guidance by email until further notice. 

Students and future students may contact studienberatung@uibk.ac.at to ask questions and connect with advisors.

The Student Advisory Services team is available for any general academic questions via live chat through our ChatBot every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.
