International students may face special challenges studying and working in Germany. ZQS/Key Competencies wants to support you to succeed in your studies, in getting an internship or in starting your career. With a wide range of workshops and individual consultations we offer advice on all matters concerning studying, writing academic papers or applying for a job in Germany.

With our international workshops and consultations we also want to address students who plan to study or work abroad. For these students we offer English courses on key competences as well as consultations and workshops on how to apply in English speaking countries.

Please note:

Our consulting services are offered in German and English. We recommend a German language proficiency level of at least B2 for participation in German-language seminars and workshops as well as practical programmes.
