Quality initiative for better learning: Orientation Tutorials at Heinrich Heine University

For new students, starting a course of study, with its transition from school-level to academic learning, often turns out to be a particularly critical moment.

Therefore, we have introduced Orientation Tutorials in almost all subjects in recent years. The Orientation Tutorials are led by experienced students and offer students in their first term information and support for a successful start to their course.

The tutorials are an integral part of our effort to make the transition from school to university easier, reduce the number of students who abandon their courses, increase teaching quality and shorten study duration.
